How LicenceHero works

Too many Australians are ripped off by dodgy organisations and unlicensed contractors.

So we created LicenceHero.

Before, checking somebody's licence was difficult — government websites are often hard to find, outdated or broken.

That's what happens with public contracts.

Now, there's an online service that makes it easier than ever.

LicenceHero is Australia's one-stop-shop for all common trades and business licences. All you need to do is give LicenceHero a name, and it'll search far and wide for related licences.

Here's how it works:

Step one — Give LicenceHero a name or licence number.

You'll notice there's only one field in the search form, and that's because LicenceHero is smart enough to figure out what you're looking for.

Enter a business name, surname or registration number. If you're unsure of the spelling, LicenceHero will try to correct it for you.

Step two — LicenceHero checks all Australian licensing bodies for matches in real-time.

LicenceHero will check the databases of all Australian licensing bodies as well as our own — yes, this includes those ugly, semi-broken government websites that take an hour to find.

Unlike other shabby websites who have outdated or misleading records, LicenceHero checks millions of live records with every search. This ensures the results you get are accurate.

Don't worry; LicenceHero is very fast.

The results shown are the most up-to-date and accurate that we know of. We try very hard to make sure our information is fresh.
