TDCI Unveils New ‘One Stop’ Licensing Database

Press release from the Tennessee Department of Commerce & Insurance; February 5, 2015:

NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance (TDCI) today officially unveiled the One Stop licensing database which streamlines how customers can apply, renew and verify their licenses.

One Stop is a customer-friendly and efficient online resource where professionals can download vital documents needed to obtain or renew their licenses. One Stop also creates more transparency because it creates a new way to verify licensees’ current information, allowing consumers to make more informed choices.

“We listened to our customers who asked for a simpler way to get the information they need – whether it’s an application form or up-to-date licensure information,” said TDCI Commissioner Julie Mix McPeak. “One Stop is the latest way that the Department is continually striving to improve our customer service.”

One Stop is an easy-to-use timesaver because it centralizes all licensure applicant information, fees and requirements. Just visit One Stop on the TDCI website at and search using the profession name, regulation name or by topic. For example, if you’re looking for a cosmetologist license, you can search for “Cosmetologist” or search using a related term such as “hair.”

Search results will include applications, renewals, verifications, reinstatements and more. Results will also include a list of requirements, fees and other important information associated with a regulation.

“TDCI is excited to be the pioneer state agency for this effort, and it is another great example of our commitment to Governor Haslam’s Customer Focused Government initiative,” said TDCI Deputy Commissioner Bill Giannini. “We will continue to improve the One Stop licensing database to meet our customers’ needs. As other agencies come on board, it will only continue to improve.”

After a soft launch in January, the One Stop licensure database has been increased to include all the professions regulated and licensed by TDCI and its Division of Regulatory Boards which serves 232,000 active licensees in 22 professions including accountancy, cosmetology, real-estate, funeral directors, and home inspectors, among others. One Stop’s other databases include TDCI’s Consumer Affairs division (which include beauty pageants, credit repair companies, debt management and health clubs) as well as those regulated by the Department of Agriculture’s Division of Consumer and Industry Services.
