You're moving to another state

When you’re licensed as a Washington state resident and moving to another state

You will need to cancel your Washington state resident license in order to obtain a resident license from your new home state.

If you need a letter of clearance for your new home state send a fax to 360-586-2019 or email us a request that includes:

  • Licensee name.
  • WAOIC number.
  • How you would like your letter delivered (via postal mail, fax or email).
  • Valid postal address, fax number or email address.
  • Specific request that we cancel the license and the date you would like the cancellation to be be effective. You cannot request a future cancellation date more than 30 days from your request.

We generally send letters of clearance within three business days from your request.

  1. Obtain a resident license from your new home state.
  2. Send a fax to 360-586-2019 or email us a request for your non-resident Washington license.

You will not have to complete a new application or pay new license fees if your request is received within 30 days of the cancellation of your Washington state resident license.

Your request for a new non-resident license needs to include the following:

  • Notice that your Washington state license status has changed from resident to non-resident.
  • Your name and WAOIC number.
  • Your old resident and mailing addresses.
  • Your new resident and mailing addresses.
  • A copy of your new resident license. We will not verify your new resident licensure online. You must provide a copy.

  2. Send a fax to 360-586-2019 or email us with your new resident address information before you try to submit your application. We will need to modify your license record internally before our online system will allow you to list a new resident state on your application.
  3. Complete your new application and pay new license fees.
