License and Revenue Branch

CDFW's License and Revenue Branch (LRB) provides for the public sale of sport fishing and hunting license items, as well as many other wildlife related licenses and permits. LRB also compiles license sales statistics and provides license sales agent support.

Only checks, money orders, and debit/credit cards displaying Visa or Mastercard logos are accepted at CDFW License Sales Offices.

Cash transactions are still accepted for all items sold at authorized local sales agents. For a list of authorized local sales agent locations, please visit the Find License Agent page.
