You may renew your license on-line or by mail
Renewing on-line is secure, fast, and convenient. There is no additional charge to use this service if paid by e-check. A convenience fee of 1.9% of the invoice amount plus $1.00 will be added if a credit card is used. (Example: A $90 invoice will result in a $2.71 convenience fee for a total of $92.71 charged to your credit card). You can also change your address and other contact information. A payment Confirmation can be printed and presented to your employer as TEMPORARY proof of renewal until you receive your license in the mail.
You can also mail your renewal. Mailing a renewal may take 6 weeks to process. You cannot work until your license has been renewed.
