Headshot criteria

Headshot that meets Badging Criteria

Because Excise and Licenses is moving its license applications online, we will now require applicants to upload a headshot photo that we can use to create your badge. The rule of thumb is that if a photo would pass as a passport photo, it will suffice for badging purposes. Specifically, it must:

  • When uploading the photo, make sure that it is in the file format of jpeg or pdf. We are not able to open .heic files.
  • Be recent, clear and in color, and demonstrate a true likeness of you
  • Be taken with a solid background that you will not blend into
  • Your head must face the camera directly and your entire head must be in the photo (no hats)
  • Nothing may cover your eyes, including glasses or hair
