    It should be "fully licensed." Meaning one has whatever professional credentials and state licenses required to do the job.

    If someone is "fully licensed" to do something, it means they have successfully completed all relevant courses/passed all required tests or exams in order to be a qualified practitioner in whatever area of work they are in.

    For some jobs, you have to have a licence (like a driving licence, but for a specific job) and it's important to check that someone who is going to work for you, or carry out some kind of procedure on you (medical, massage etc), has obtained the full and complete licence to do so. The adjective for having obtained such a licence is "fully licensed".

    Re: full licensed

    She is interviewing to do a job. In this case "make-up artist."

    States in the US require professional licenses for hairdressers and make-up people. And doctors and pharmacists and all manner of occupations. Some is for public protection and some if a thinly veiled way to restrict new entrants into the marketplace.

    The interviewer is asking if she has the required licenses.

    Re: full licensed

    Can it be rephrased as "Are you now have the license to practise this profession??"

    Do you have a current/valid license to practice this profession?
    Are you currently licensed to practice this profession?
