Online License Verification

Ohio

The online license verification is the primary means of license verification. The results of the online verification include the license type(s) held by the licensee, the status of the license, and if any board action (discipline) has been taken that is subject to public review. Online license verification is free. There is a $25 charge for all comprehensive verifications (see below for more information) completed by the Board for submission to other jurisdictions or entities requesting detailed information regarding a licensee.

Note: only request a verification through the eLicense Dashboard when the verification is for an out of state licensing board or when an entity requires a comprehensive information. Verification requests placed through the eLicense Dashboard are subject to a non-refundable $25 fee,  while online license look ups are free. Please be sure you require the comprehensive verification when making a request through the Dashboard. Generally the online license verification will be sufficient.
