  • Have a License eXpress account for your driver, vehicle, or business licenses
  • Have done business online with:
    • Department of Revenue
    • Department of Labor and Industries
    • Employment Security Department

If you already have SAW login, use Chrome to log in with your existing username and password.

Once you've logged in, you'll need to:

  • Add the Professional and Business Licensing service to your list of services
