Angie's List License Check

Angie's List License Check

Does your would-be contractor really carry the right license for your home-improvement project? Use this tool to look up the license requirements for professionals as required by your state. You can also check license requirements for hair stylists, taxi drivers and other professionals.

Where available, the License Check tool also provides links to regulatory agencies' real-time license verification websites, so you can verify a professional or contractor’s current license status before you hire.


Since we look at license requirements across the country, we keep our focus mainly on national and state license requirements. For licensure at the city and county level, we encourage consumers to be in touch with their local government to confirm any local license requirements.

This is an ongoing effort that may never be perfectly complete. Please help us make it better by letting us know when you spot a bad link or if you know of an agency we haven’t cited.
