Use the search below to see if a business/individual holds a license from the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA). Note:

  • DCA does not endorse any licensed organization or person.
  • Search for a DCA Licensee is updated daily.
  • You can download a list of licensed Sightseeing Guides (in PDF) to see which guides earned an exemplary score of 120 or more on the licensing exam.
  • You can use DCA’s Sidewalk Café Map to find existing sidewalk café locations near you and see details about the café.
  • Review the Search Tips (in PDF).

Call 311 (212-NEW-YORK outside NYC) during business hours and ask to be transferred to DCA to learn more about a business’s license status or to check a business’s complaint history.
