You can find information on how to apply for license on each state's website.

If you are unlicensed, you will need to pass the FE and then the PE and then apply for licensee.

A lot of States have waivers from taking the FE exam. A person who has 20 years progressive engineering experience can bypass the FE exam, and sit for the PE exam.
