Professional License Lookup Mobile App Now Available In Delaware

Stocks in this article: EGOV

Delawareans can now review the license status of doctors, accountants, realtors, plumbers, cosmetologists, and many other professionals directly from their smartphones, adding a new level of convenience to their search for professional services. The new search tool is a free mobile application that allows users to search Division of Professional Regulation records by name, license number, license type, or location. They can learn whether a given professional has a current license in Delaware and whether or not any disciplinary actions have been taken against that professional.

The new mobile Professional License Search tool was created for the Division of Professional Regulation in partnership with the Delaware Government Information Center (GIC) as part of Delaware’s eGovernment initiative, which seeks to make it easier for Delawareans to interact with their government.

“We are pleased to offer mobile access to the Professional License Search,” said Deputy Secretary of State James Collins, who oversees the Division of Professional Regulation. “We are always looking for tools to help customers make informed choices about the professionals providing them services. This is in keeping with Governor Markell’s priorities to make government more efficient, effective, and as in this case, transparent.”

The Professional License Search application is a joint creation of Delaware State Government and Delaware Interactive (DI). The State engaged DI last year to increase the number of online services available to citizens and businesses through the state’s official portal, delaware.gov.

The application is available on any mobile or desktop platform. It can be accessed at egov.delaware.gov/pls or at the State of Delaware mobile applications site, http://www.apps.delaware.gov.

The Division of Professional Regulation (DPR) is a part of the Delaware Department of State. More information about the DPR can be obtained at dpr.delaware.gov.
