License Information

Per Wis. Stat. § 440.08(2), the required renewal date for the Auctioneer credential is 12/14/ each even-numbered year.  Should you receive your initial credential​ in the months leading up to this date, you are still required to renew your license by the statutorily defined date.

Note: Auctioneers must hold a current seller's permit issued by the Department of Revenue, unless exempt. Please call the Department of Revenue at (608) 266‑2776 to obtain more information about the seller's permit.

Exam Exemption Based on Reciprocity

Applicants with a current Auctioneer license (not an Apprentice Auctioneer license) in Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, or Texas may request an exam exemption. See page i​ of application (Form #2077) for further details.

Temporary Permit

The Department may grant a temporary permit to applicants who apply to register by examination which makes them eligible to practice for 60 days. An additional $10.00 temporary permit fee is charged. The permit is not renewable and cannot be extended. Applicants who have not passed the examination before their temporary permits expire are not eligible to practice until they pass the exam and are registered.

​R210​Active Duty/Discharge Renewal Extension

Wisconsin Act 210 (effective June 1, 2012)

This Act extends the license of a service member if the license expires while they are on active duty from 90 days to 180 days from the date of discharge. The same applies to a spouse of a service member if the spouse does not practice under their license while the service member is on active duty and does not practice because the service member is on active duty.

This Act repeals a provision of prior law that required a service member to meet all of the requirements for license extension or renewal, except for continuing education requirements, in order to have the license extended.

Service members and spouses may request extensions of licenses beyond 180 days from discharge and may request a waiver or extension of time to complete continuing education requirements due to hardship. Please view Active Duty/Discharge Renewal Extension Form R210 for further information.
