LICENSE CARDS
The Indiana Professional Licensing Agency no longer automatically mails updated license cards when your license is renewed.   You can determine if your renewal has been received and processed by accessing our free Online Verification Search.   Please allow 24 hours (1 business day) for your license to be updated.   Once you verify that your license has been renewed, you may order a new license card online at Services.IN.gov/License Express.  You will be given the option to download a free license card for immediate printing or to purchase a blue license card to be mailed to you.  

Indiana law requires that the chiropractic license must be displayed in the office or the place of practice of the licensee.   Therefore you must either download the free license card or purchase an updated blue card to post.
