Important: You must provide proof of citizenship or legal residency when you apply for a license. GDA requires S&V (Secure & Verifiable) documents for all licensees. See the S&V Details page and S&V FAQ for complete information.

Reminder: Please make sure your mailing address, email, and phone number are up-to-date, and that your voicemail is not full.  There will be a delay in getting your license if we need to reach you but don't have usable contact information.

What Happens When You Apply for a License

  1. When you send us your application packet, we will review your application and contact you if we have any questions.
  2. You will receive a visit from one of our inspectors to do a pre-inspection.  If the inspector finds any problems they will work with you to resolve them.  You cannot move further in the licensing process until you have passed your pre-inspection and your application has been approved.
  3. Once your application packet has been approved and processed you will receive an email requesting your S&V paperwork.
  4. Once your S&V paperwork has been received and approved, your license certificate will be emailed/mailed to you within 1 - 7 business days.

Respond promptly to any questions or notifications, and make sure GDA can contact you if needed!
