CDFW's License and Revenue Branch (LRB) relocated to the newly constructed California Natural Resources Agency building in downtown Sacramento in October 2021. The new location does not have a public license sales counter. However, LRB still serves as the hub for CDFW license sales operations and license agent support, and continues to be available by phone, email, fax, the internet, and various mail carrier services Monday–Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. (excluding state holidays).

Additionally, various licenses, permits, tags, and other entitlements continue to be available for purchase using the following sales channels:
