In American English, the noun is spelled the same as the verb—license. But in British English, the noun is spelled licence. All the while, the meaning stays the same—permission, a permit, a document that states you are qualified or allowed to do something.
What is the difference between license and licensed?
(In the UK, “licence” means “official papers,” and “license” means “to allow.” So, “licensed” means “allowed.”) In the US, use “license” for “official papers” and “to allow.”
