FAQ: When should I disclose any prior criminal activity to the Commission?

When should I disclose any prior criminal activity to the Commission?

You must disclose any prior criminal activity to the Commission when it comes time to submit your license application.
You must also include the required supporting documentation before the Commission will review your case.
Unfortunately, the Commission does not pre-review applications, which means you must first complete the 75-hour pre-license course and pass the state exam before the Commission will review your case and determine if your license application will be approved or denied.
