Licensing Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I obtain written verification of a license?
    Please use our Online Bill-Pay site to order your license verification letter or you may send a written request with the fee of $25. Verifications that are accompanied by the appropriate fee are processed and mailed daily.
  2. When will I get a renewal notice?
    Although there is no statutory requirement to give notice, the Board does mail renewal notice postcards to your mailing address on file and several emails to email on file starting approximately sixty (60) and thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of a license. Please keep the Board informed of your current mailing and email address at all times. If you did not receive a notice, contact the Board office and a duplicate will be sent. Any renewal post-marked after the expiration date is considered late and the late fee will be required. Not receiving a renewal notice is not grounds for waiving the late fee.
  3. How do I renew my license and update my personal/practice profile to include my address and emails?
    Go to the Licensee/Applicant Login page to see if your profession can renew online. If your profession is not listed please contact the Board immediately.
  4. When and How can I get a new wallet card?
    Go to Print/Download your Wallet Card and login with the same credentials you used to renew online. If you did not renew online and/or your profession is not listed as one that can renew online please contact the Board to obtain your PIN number. You will have access to your current wallet card and your license profile page 24/7. We stopped printing and mailing wallet cards since early 2018.
