the last name, then the search will look for exact matches.

entering several of the words that you know are contained in the name. If you use
a word that is 3 letters or less, then the search will only look for that word
- If you enter both a Last Name and the name of an
Organization/Establishment/Business, then the search only uses the Last Name.
You cannot search using both name types.

Alternate Search Parameters such as License Category, License Type, and City.
This will reduce the number of licenses returned by the search.
Searching by License
When searching by License
Number, you can search by either the number part of the license number, or you
can enter the entire license number, including the letters. If you know the
specific License Category and License Type, you can select these from the drop
down to limit the search results. Selecting the License Category and License
Type is not required.
by License Type or City/County
You can search for licenses by
License Type within a City or County. You must always select a License
Category, License Type, and a City/County. This search will always return
licenses for the selected type within the city or county.
