HOW TO CHECK IF YOU HAVE BEEN ISSUED A GUARD EMPLOYEE (GDE) LICENSE

  • Go to http://cca.hawaii.gov/pvl/e_services/
  • On the right of the page, click on “On-line Services”
  • Click on the Professional and Vocational Licensing Search link
  • Then click on the Business/Individual tab.

Enter your name (or the name of someone you are checking on) and if a GDE license number comes a license has been issued. If nothing comes back it means the application has not yet been processed.

Per the DCCA, it takes 15-20 business days to process an application.

If you want to call to check on the status of your application the contact number for the DCCA is 808-586-3000
