Late Renewals, Cancellations, and Reinstatements

If we do not receive your license renewal on or before the expiration date, you must pay an additional $60 penalty.

You have 1 year from the expiration date of your license to renew. If you do not renew your license within this time–frame, your license will be canceled. You are responsible for renewing your license on time. You will be considered unlicensed when your license expires.

If your license has been canceled, and you would like to reinstate your license, please contact our office at 360.664.6500 for more information about this process.
