Got a question maybe one of yous can help. So a coworker of mine has shown interest and wants to go out with me for rabbit season this July. I told him to get his hunters ed done and get his license but to hurry since it's tough to get a class in time. As it stands the only class available with our work schedule is for early Aug. He mentioned that he actually did a hunters ed course back in 2002 and got his license but wasn't sure if he needed to again.

It is my understanding that he should be good to go right?

We tried signing him up through the wildlifelicense site but says he doesnt have proof of hunters ed on there. I told him to contact the general license counter at the DFW but thought I'd ask you fine gentlemen.

That is correct, DFW would have it on file. I think there might be an office for just hunters ed even.

If he can find his old license, he will be good to go....2002 was probably before the computer/online stuff....If here's no record, then I would assume that he would have to take the test again.

Bass pro gives half the test on line, then 1/2 day at their location in Rancho Cucamonga

Yes have him find his old license.
Use it as proof. To purchase a new license. But tell him to keep diggen to find his certificate..
Even though I had old license and could purchase my license. I retook it. It is now on the f & web site.
I got my hunter Ed in 69. No computers lol.

You can also fill out an affidavit at a license dealer saying you have had a hunting license in the past.
