Welcome to the PLCB eLicensing Website  

Welcome to the On-Line Licensing Processing System.

We hope you enjoy the ease and convenience of on-line license renewal and validation. Currently, we are processing renewals and validations for retail and wholesale licenses. We will continually expand this site to include more beverage alcohol license types and application processes in an effort to make interaction with the PLCB as easy as possible. We are considering a number of additional features for your convenience. Your comments and suggestions are welcome, via email at

To begin the renewal or validation process, please have ready your License Identification (LID) and Password. This information can be found on the "PLCB Application for License Validation" or "PLCB Application for License Renewal" you received in the mail or picked up at your assigned Wine & Spirits Shoppe.

Please note that if your application packet does not contain a LID and PASSWORD, you cannot renew/validate your license on-line.

Note: Licensees using Internet service should allow 10-14 business days for processing and mailing. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received. Renewals and validations are not complete until a license or an authority letter is received by mail from the PLCB. Penalties for late filers still apply.
