Division Overview
The Division of Professional Regulation is divided into two operating divisions with specific duties and responsibilities. For more detailed information click on a specific item.

Individuals who are already licensed in another state may apply for an Illinois license by endorsement from that state, or acceptance of that state's examination. Applicants from other states may not be required to pass an examination in Illinois if they meet requirements set forth in the professional licensing statutes and rules, such as proof of education, testing and experience. However, a license will not be issued until the Division has received and approved all documentation.

Inquiries regarding individuals currently licensed by the Division; i.e., licensure verification, certification of licensure to another state, address change, name change, and restoration of a license may be directed to the Licensure Maintenance Unit. Access the Division's Web Site here for the following:

  • LICENSE LOOKUP Look up an individual or entity holding a professional license with IDPR
  • PROFESSIONAL INFORMATION E-mail a question regarding licensure
  • Download a copy of professional licensure acts & rules
  • Make an address change
