Welcome to the State of Indiana Online Verification Service.  This service provides you with the choice of either a quick and simple verification of a license or a digitally certified verification, which can be used as proof of licensure when applying to another state. The total fee for this service is $11.22.

Upon receipt of payment, a digitally certified copy of the license record will be created and a file dialog box will appear on your screen.  At this dialog box follow these instructions carefully:

Important: Do NOT use your smart phone or tablet for this process. A laptop or desktop computer must be used for the file to download properly.

  1. SAVE the document to your PC by replying SAVE.
  2. Open the document when prompted by the second dialog box to view the license record.
  3. If needed for licensing in another state, email the saved PDF to the state licensing board to which you are applying*.The state of Indiana does not mail or email verifications to you or to anyone else on your behalf.

*Engineers please follow this link for further instruction on submitting your digital certification.

If the validity of a record is ever disputed, saving the document will give you the opportunity to later upload the digitally certified record to verify its authenticity.  Do NOT use the "save as" feature if prompted to do so.  This will invalidate the digital certification.

Digitally certified license records are delivered and viewable in .pdf format and require Adobe Acrobat Reader.  If you don't have the Reader, download it here

This application uses processes that follow the requirements of Indiana's Electronic Digital Signature Act, Ind. Code 5-24-1-1 et seq. and rules developed by the Indiana State Board of Accounts, 20 IAC 3-1 et seq. to establish a valid digital signature.
