Shop Licensure Process

Idaho law requires the licensure of all establishments and schools.  

There are specific licensure requirements for establishments that must be complied with in order to license a shop or other establishment.  Please review the appropriate laws & rules for establishment licensure and the application instructions before submitting an application. 

All applicants must complete and submit an application together with any other required documentation and appropriate fees.

Contiguous licenses are issued to the specific primary shop. LICENSES ARE NOT TRANFERABLE FROM ONE PRIMARY SHOP LOCATION TO ANOTHER. Any change in primary shop requires the submission of a new application.
