To apply for a license for the first time in Indiana, please complete the Application for Radiology License. Please mail the application and payment to the address on the form. Currently, there is no option to apply online for first-time applicants.

To renew a license, we encourage everyone to renew their license online.

These are tips to renew a license online:

  • You can renew your license and update your contact information at this direct link: https://www.in.gov/pla/3121.htm
  • You could enter your license number for User ID (which is case sensitive). Please make sure that you enter your license number with capital letters (i.e. X and T and zero, rather than the letter O), etc. You could enter the last 4 digits of your social security number for the password
  • Another option is to go to “Register” and enter only two of the fields (i.e. social security number and birth date)
  • Another option is to go to “Renew License” on the left side of the screen, which is under “Menu”. If that doesn’t work, you should get out of the licensing home page and then try to register again.  Then click on “Renew License”. It should work okay then.
  • If you're not able to renew your license online, you may send your renewal form and payment to this address:

Indiana Department of Health
Attn: Medical Radiology Services
2 North Meridian Street
Indianapolis, IN 46204
