Is Your Resolution to be Licensed?

We are already a month into 2013. This is the time when everyone starts to  realize that the resolutions made with all intention of following through, just aren’t getting accomplished. To achieve our goals, it takes action…

If your resolution was to be licensed, be in business for yourself or add a new level of service to your business, there are clear steps to take.

  • Step one: Identify the license needed.
  • Step two: If a test is necessary, sign up for an exam prep class and take the test. Resources can be found here.
  • Step three:  Submit the application to the state.

Accomplishing your goals can be achieved. Don’t give up before you try. If you want to make it even easier, contact the team at Licenses, Etc. We can advise you on the license you are able to apply for, assist in starting the business and help the application portion go as smoothly as it possibly can. Don’t just wish, resolve and accomplish!

Self-Reporting of Criminal Offenses

As of October 1, 2009, the Florida Statutes require all license holders to self-report to the department. This must occur within 30 days of being convicted, found guilty of, or pleading nolo contendere or guilty to a crime of any kind, anywhere. 

The statute also requires the reporting of any convictions that occurred prior to October 1, 2009.  If you do not submit this information, you can be subject to fines, suspension or license revocation.  You must report any felony, misdemeanor or traffic offense that is not for parking, speeding, inspection, or traffic signal violations. This is true regardless of whether you were placed on probation, had adjudication withheld, were paroled, or pardoned.

It is important to ensure that you are not jeopardizing your license over something as small as a careless driving ticket or speeding in a manatee zone. To report this information, complete the criminal self-reporting document and mail it to the department. You can always call the Licenses, Etc. team as well for help!
