Things to know

  • You must renew your license every 2 years.

  • We must receive your completed renewal application packet on or before the date it expires. There is no grace period for the renewal of an instructor license. We'll cancel your license if it expires and you'll have to re-apply and take all the necessary exams. We don't process applications received after a license expires.
