Since January 2004, the Private Security Act has required that individuals and companies performing locksmith services in the state of Texas be licensed by the Department of Public Safety.

The state recommends before you allow a locksmith access to your home, business or other property, you ensure he, or she is licensed. Licensed locksmiths will be able to provide you a Department-issued license number. The state licenses all of the Locksmiths here at Automobile Locksmith. Our company license number is located on the right-hand side on the top of the page.
