Licensing

The Indiana Horse Racing Commission has licensing offices at Indiana Grand (Shelbyville, IN) and Hoosier Park (Anderson, IN).  These offices are staffed year round, but public office hours vary by season.

Hard copy and printable licensing applications are available in each office and online. Once you have completed the correct application, office staff will review it to assure that it is complete and ready for review by commission officials.

Indiana requires every licensee be fingerprinted.  While we participate in fingerprint reciprocity with some surrounding states, you may or may not be required to submit fingerprints to obtain your license.  During a review of your application, officials will determine your fingerprint status and contact you if you need to submit fingerprints.   Upon payment (licensing offices accept cash, money orders or major credit cards) of your application, it will be submitted for review and approval.  Once your license has been approved and issued, you’re eligible to have a photo taken and a photo ID badge will be created.  You may use this badge to access the backside of the racetrack you are racing at.

You may also apply for or renew your license online!  Click “Online Licensing” and you will be guided throughout a series of screens which will explain the process of setting up a user profile account. If you have been licensed in Indiana in past years, PLEASE have your license number available.  If you don’t know your number, please contact one of the licensing offices to find it.   Once your account is set and verified, simply follow the steps for applying online.  At the end of the online process you will have the option to pay at that time or pay later.  By clicking “submit”, your information will be forwarded to the licensing office, however, license review and processing will only begin once payment has been made. Once the review process has been completed and your license has been issued, we will e-mail you a receipt (if no photo is on file) or we will mail you a receipt and an ID badge utilizing the photo already on file for you.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding our licensing process, please let us know.  We value your feedback and hope to be able to utilize your input to make your licensing experience as quick and effortless as possible.  Please e-mail us at INhorseracing@hrc.in.gov .
