I completed my auctioneer school in August, 2020 and immediately applied for my license. Unfortunately, South Carolina statute requires a state provided criminal background check for every state that the applicant has lived in for the last five years. As I have only been in SC for the last two, I had to contact Arizona for this. It turns out that Arizona does not provide these (by statute) because they are a "Closed Records" state. I have to wait until 11/17/2020 to present my case to the Auctioneer Board to see if they will go ahead and grant me a license anyway since there is no way to get around this. Wish me luck!
