Notice to All Texas Hold’em Individual Applicants

Do not misstate or omit any material fact. An arrest is not necessarily grounds for denial of a license. However, misrepresentations or failures to disclose information may cause your application to be rejected or denied. Such misstatements or failures to disclose may also result in criminal prosecution under the Delaware Criminal Code.

Information on How to Apply for a License in DELPROS

All applications are submitted our online system DELPROS. We no longer accept paper applications.

DELPROS allows you to save your incomplete application and return to it later to finish the process. You only have six (6) months to submit your application once you begin.

  • If you do not submit your application within six months of starting it, you will be required to restart the entire online application again.

You may check the status of your application online throughout the entire application process by using the “View Application Status” feature in DELPROS on your e-License dashboard.


  1. Know the requirements for the license you are pursuing.
  2. Request and gather all documents required to upload on the Attachments page. All information and forms are located on your profession’s webpages.


On the ATTACHMENTS page of your application, you may be instructed to:

  • either “attach” or “upload” the required document(s) directly to your application. This means you will find the document(s) saved on your computer or device and upload it to your application.
  • click “acknowledge” . This means you will either have to mail the documents yourself or request the “third-party” mail the document(s) directly to the Board office.
    • Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, and license verifications from another state.
  • Forms requiring a supervisor signature, seal, or notary may have to be MAILED to the Board office directly UNLESS the document specifically indicates to UPLOAD the document.

The requirements for this license type are provided in the following section(s).

Texas Hold’em Individual Applicants

In addition to submitting the application and fee in DELPROS, you must submit:

  • A copy of your current driver’s license or state-issued identification card.
  • A State of Delaware and Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal background checks (CBC). Follow the instructions on the Criminal History Record Check Authorization  form to arrange to be fingerprinted. Submit the forms and payment to the State Bureau of Identification (SBI). Do not send these forms to the Board office.
    • Allow at least four weeks for the SBI to send criminal history records to the Board office.
    • A new criminal background check is required even if the person recently had a criminal background check done for some other reason.

Renewing Texas Hold’em Individual Licenses

Texas Hold’em Individual Licenses expire three years from the date they are issued.

A few months before the expiration date of your license, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access your online renewal application in DELPROS, our online portal. To complete the online renewal application, you must log-in to your account, answer questions, and use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, will be sent by email only. It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date so that all the notices we send reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click on Manage Contact link in DELPROS.

An active license must be renewed in DELPROS before the expiration date. During renewal, you will be required to submit a new criminal background record. Click here or see our website for a Criminal History Record Check Authorizationinstructions and form. Submit the form, along with the required fee, to the State Bureau of Identification, not to the Board office.

Before your license can be officially renewed, you must make an appointment to be photographed at the Division of Professional Regulation. Your license will not be renewed until an updated photograph is in your file. You will receive instructions for making the appointment during the renewal process.

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to deal or act as a Tournament Director while your license is expired. To become re-licensed, you must reapply in DELPROS as a new applicant.
