Important Notice

Starting January 1, 2017 the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will no longer accept cash at CDFW’s License and Revenue Branch and regional license counters. Individuals who want to make payments at CDFW’s License and Revenue Branch or a regional license counter can use checks, money orders, or any debit/credit card with the Visa or Mastercard logo.

This “no-cash policy” will improve customer and employee safety, department efficiency, customer service and provide cost savings. Accepting cash payments is costly in both the staff time it takes to process and in armored car services.

Cash transactions will still be available 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.
