What do I have to do to request a Professional and Vocational Licensing Division – Verification of License ?

Verification of licenses can be done on-line at no cost using our license search site at https://pvl.ehawaii.gov/pvlsearch. You or the requesting agency will be able to obtain information such as original license date, license expiration date, license status, disciplinary action, etc. The information downloaded from this site is official license information which state boards or other individuals can download for themselves.

If the above is not acceptable, please submit a written request that includes the complete address of the location that the verification is to be mailed to along with a $15 fee ($30 if requesting both Sales and Brokers license history).

Check payable to:
Commerce and Consumer Affairs
