RENEWAL OPTIONS:  Online at our secure website – Please don’t wait until the last day, as the Thanksgiving Holiday is near the deadline and staff will be unavailable to assist you with any login or technical difficulties.

If you are not renewing your license and requesting a voluntary termination status, notify us in writing by mail or email to avoid an administrative termination.

What to do if you have a name change:  We need validation of your name change. This documentation need only be a photocopy of the document changing your name, i.e. marriage license/certificate, divorce decree.  Fax, scan and email, or mail the copy to the Board office. There is no fee for this service. Your name will be updated in the database. During renewals it is best to send in the name change documents first and then renew once the name change has occurred in the database. Your renewal certificate will be issued in your new name.
