The Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) License Search provides consumers with daily and around-the-clock access to 3.9 million licensees. Consumers can click with confidence at https://search.dca.ca.gov to verify if a profession is licensed by a DCA board or bureau. Each license record will reflect if a license is current, expired, or has been subject to disciplinary action such as suspension or revocation.
Knowledge is power, and DCA’s online search tool empowers consumers to help them make informed decisions about the individuals and businesses they seek services from, whether it’s for medical care, automotive repair, or cosmetology services. It’s important to know your rights as a consumer to avoid any potential problems.
DCA’s website provides information about how to file a complaint against a DCA licensee: Learn more at http://www.dca.ca.gov or check out the publication Who We Are and What We Do. For a free printed copy, call the DCA Publications Hotline at (866) 320- 8652.
