 Licensing, Registration & Commissioning Services

The West Virginia Secretary of State is responsible for administering several licensing requirements.   Because the term "licensing" is interpreted in different ways, this index of commissions, licenses and registrations will help you find what you are looking for, whether or not it is filed in our Licensing Division.

Other Licenses

The list of licensing in other agencies is long and complex.  Visit Business for West Virginia, West Virginia's online business exchange, to search for licenses by category or word search, and find links to the agencies that administer those requirements for licenses, permits, registrations and other authorizations required for specific activities in the state. At that site, select Apply for Licenses/Permits to begin your search.
