  • Application is made within 90 days of establishing residence in Indiana
  • The applicant was currently licensed in another state or cancelled the previous license not more than 90 days prior to submitting the application
  • The applicant submits clearance letter from their former state of residence indicating the applicant was, at the time of cancellation, in good standing in that state
  • The applicant submits to IDOI an application, the clearance letter and a check for $40

After IDOI receives these forms and the applicant's fee, a new license will be mailed. The license should be mailed within 5 working days.
