- Affirms certain information concerning licensure in another state;
- Submits verification that the person is licensed in a regulated occupation (g., real estate) in at least one other state;
- Has passed a national criminal background check; and
- Submits an application and pays an application fee
May be issued a provisional license for the regulated occupation at the same practice level allowed by the license held by that person in another state.
Provisional licensing does not apply to a license that is established or reciprocal through an interstate compact, a reciprocity agreement, or a comity agreement established by a board or law.
The provisional license is to be issued within 30 days of application. The provisional license expires 365 days after it is issued.
A person who submits false information for a provisional license commits a Class A infraction and may be subject to penalties for perjury. If it is discovered that any information on the application is false, the board may revoke the license immediately.
