As a consumer, you are empowered to take charge of your relationship with the individuals who provide various services such as medical and dental care, or automotive repairs.
Because of this, the California Department of Consumer Affairs’ (DCA) Office of Information Services–developed a new, more user-friendly license search tool optimized for mobile devices and tablets. Updated in real-time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this tool can be used to assist consumers with finding a licensed professional or provide help with information about how to file a complaint against a DCA licensee.
DCA is an advocate for California consumers, and is the primary resource for questions or concerns pertaining to the individuals it licenses.
Consumer protection is paramount to the boards, bureaus, and commissions under the DCA umbrella and consumers are encouraged to trust but verify, by checking the existence or status of a license through its license search tool. For more information visit search.dca.ca.gov.
