Renewal of Expired License
All licenses issued by the Board expire on December 31st of each year. There is no "grace period"...no activities requiring a license may be performed until the license is renewed. If not renewed by January 31st, a $25.00 late processing fee will apply.
An expired license may be renewed during the three year period following expiration. If the license has been expired for more than three years, the applicant must take the examination(s) to reinstate the license.
If your 2013 license has expired, you may renew for 2014 online by clicking the link at the top of this page. If you choose to mail in or deliver your renewal to the office, renewals are processed in the order that they are received. Please allow 2-3 days for processing after the form and payment is received in our office.
If your license expired in 2011 or 2012, you are not eligible for online renewal. Please visit the Forms page for a multi-year renewal form. If your license expired in 2010 or earlier, you are not eligible for renewal.
Continuing Education Not Required for Annual License Renewal
Licensees are no longer required to attend continuing education courses that have been approved by the Board as a condition of annual renewal. The Board strongly encourages all licensees to periodically attend continuing education classes in order maintain and increase your knowledge within your respective trades. In order to assist our licensees in locating continuing education classes, our website will soon list the names, types of classes, and contact information of the providers who notify the Board staff that they will be offering continuing education classes.
