Clearance letters

These official documents verify a license's history and status when the license has been cancelled. The letters are requested when a resident licensee moves to another state and the licensee's new home state requires verification of their Washington-state-license history.

Request a letter of clearance

Note: Requesting a letter of clearance will cancel your license.

Send a fax to 360-586-2019 or email us a written request that includes:

  • Licensee name;
  • WAOIC number;
  • How you would like your letter delivered (via postal mail, fax or email);
  • Valid postal address, email address or fax number; and
  • Dated signature.

While we send the original letter via postal mail, we will fax or email a copy to you if you request it.

There is no fee for a letter of clearance.

How long will it take?

Requests are usually processed within three days of receiving them.
