  1. Navigate to the NIPR web site (
  2. On the left side of the page, you will see a list of products and services that the NIPR offers. If you are a resident of Arizona, scroll down to the "Resident" section and click on Initial License. If you are a resident of another state, scroll down to the "Non-Resident" section and click on Initial License.
  3. NIPR charges a fee (over an above state-required fees) to process your license application and fee payment electronically. Click the Fees link on the left side of the page to view NIPR fees.
  4. Prior to beginning your online application, review requirements you need to satisfy by clicking on the State Specific Requirements link and then click the Arizona link. We will be unable to issue a license to you until you have satisfied all requirements.
  5. Click the Begin ERL Applicaton or Begin NRL Application link, read and accept the Use Agreement (by clicking the Accept button at the bottom of the Agreement), and carefully complete the online application.
  6. Before accepting fees from you, the NIPR system will check through your online application.
    1. If the system believes your application is complete, it will allow you to pay fees and complete the application process.
    2. If the system believes your application is deficient, it will reject your application and will tell you what you need to do to submit an acceptable application.
  7. After you have completed the application, the system will send you an e-mail. Read this e-mail carefully! The e-mail will tell you either:
    1. Your application has been accepted. When NIPR accepts a license application on our behalf, they transmit license information to our system. If the information is acceptable, our system issues you an electronic license. Use our web site to view your license and use the NIPR web site to correct or update information. NOTE: We do not produce paper license certificates - click here for details.
    2. Your application has been deferred.
      1. Some applications are deferred because you need to provide additional information that NIPR cannot collect through the online system (see the "OTHER LICENSING-RELATED FORMS" section of this page). The e-mail you receive will describe the deficiencies that need to be cured.
      2. In other cases, we simply need to complete some research before rendering a licensing decision.
