Licensing Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I obtain written verification of a license?
    Send a written request with the fee of $25. Verifications that are accompanied by the appropriate fee are processed and mailed daily. If a request comes in without the fee it is forwarded to the business office for billing prior to being mailed.
  2. When will I get a renewal notice?
    Although there is no statutory requirement to give notice, the Board does mail renewal notices approximately sixty (60) days prior to the expiration of a license. All notices are mailed to the mailing address we have on file. Please keep the Board informed of your current mailing address at all times. If you did not receive a notice, contact the Board office and a duplicate will be sent. Within the next few months we will start mailing a reminder card thirty (30) days prior to license expiration if you have not renewed. Any renewal post-marked after the expiration date is considered late and the late fee will be required. Not receiving a notice is not grounds for waiving the late fee.
  3. When will I get a new wallet card?
    Renewals are posted daily as they arrive at the Board office. Each Monday, wallet cards are printed and mailed for everyone who renewed the previous week. If you submitted your payment and do not receive a new card within the next couple of weeks, contact the Board office. Please renew early in order to receive your new card prior to the old card expiring.
