Reciprocity

A Kentucky licensee interested in obtaining a license in a reciprocal state should contact that state. The state may require a Letter of Good Standing or a license certification of a Kentucky licensee to complete their application process.

An auctioneer, licensed in another state, who wishes to apply for license in Kentucky by reciprocity must meet the following requirements:

  • 1) Licensed as an auctioneer for at least one (1) year in a reciprocal state, or two (2) years in a reciprocal state that does not require an apprenticeship
  • 2) A "Letter of Good Standing" or License Certification submitted with the application and fee. Current through 06/30/16, the reciprocal initial license fee is $280, unless otherwise noted beside the state listed below. This includes $30 to the Recovery Fund. The license is renewed and, if applicable, continuing education hours are reported in June.

The Board does not issue licenses for firms or companies. The licensee provides one business address. The license is printed and mailed to a licensee's business address. All other correspondence from the Board is addressed to the licensee's home/mailing address.

Reciprocal Application

Candidates may type most information on the form. Then send to your printer; sign and notarize the hard copy, and mail pages 1 and 2 with other application materials to the Kentucky Board of Auctioneers. Or contact the Kentucky Board for the application form.


The Kentucky Board of Auctioneers has reciprocal agreements with the following 16 states.
