  • A confirmation number and license/registration number will be issued to you upon completion of your application. This number will serve as an official acknowledgement that your application has been received by ODT.
  • Online applications must be paid for at the time you complete the registration process or no license will be issued. This fee must be paid by ACH (Electronic Check). In order to pay by ACH, you will need the following information:
    • Checking or Savings Bank Account number

  • You will need a printer to print your license and confirmation. The license you print at the end of your transaction is your official license.
  • No refunds are permitted on any license related fees, so review your selections carefully.
  • If your computer is idle for 20 minutes, your session will "time-out" and you will lose any data you are entering on the current screen. You will have to log in again to continue working on any registrations that are in-progress.
