Barber Initial by State Endorsement (BAR 4)

A Florida barber license is required to perform all barbering services. If you hold a barber license in another state, you may be eligible for endorsement in Florida.

Application Requirements:
 
  • ENDORSEMENT: Attempting to qualify for licensure in Florida without having to take an examination by holding an active barbers license in another state.

  • AGE: Applicants for licensure by endorsement must be at least 16 years of age.

  • LICENSE CERTIFICATION: Submit a copy of a license certification from the state in which a current, active license is held.

  • HIV/AIDS COURSE: The HIV/AIDS course must have been completed within two years prior to submitting an application. Note: the 4 hour course for cosmetology cannot substitute the 2 hour course for barbers. For more information, please refer to our list of board-approved Initial HIV/AIDS Courses.

  • FEE: Pay the required fee as provided in the application. If applying online, you can pay with a credit card or electronic check. If mailing your application, please include a check payable to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Military veterans, their spouses and Florida National Guard members may be eligible for a fee waiver, fee reimbursement, and/or fee discount.
