Does one need a special Private Investigator’s license?
If one meets the state requirements usually determined by a state governing body, one may obtain a Private Investigator license. Different states have different requirements for a person seeking to obtain a Private Investigator’s license. Some of these requirements are very in-depth while other states simply require one to undergo a background check.
A Private Investigation agency, whether it is a large corporation or a small sole proprietorship must also adhere to and maintain specific licensing, insurance, taxation, and other local government requirements for their specific class of business.
Most states require those with a Private Investigators license to maintain Continuing Education Training on a yearly basis in order to maintain that license, which is usually renewed every other year after appropriate fees are paid to the state.
