How to renew your license: Shops, mobile units, and event locations

We have a new online service for managing professional and business licenses. Learn how to set up account access. If you need help with the new service, please contact dolelicensingsupport@dol.wa.gov or 360.664.0200, option 7.

We expect a processing delay for mailed applications and renewals. Renew or apply online for faster processing of your license. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Things to know

  • License expires 1 year after it is issued, or when your business liability insurance expires, whichever comes first
  • You can renew 120 days before your license expires
  • There will be a late fee if you don't renew before it expires
  • If your license has been expired for more than 1 year, it's canceled and you must reapply.
  • We consider your shop, mobile unit, or event location unlicensed if your license expires or gets canceled. You can receive a fine for engaging in unlicensed activity.

Before you renew

  • If this is your first time to access your account online, or if your last online renewal was before June 22, 2017, you must set up account access before you renew.
  • Be ready to answer legal background questions and provide documents if needed.

What you'll need

  • Username/User ID and Password for account access (see Before you renew above)
  • Visa, MasterCard, or American Express credit or debit card to pay renewal fee
  • If needed, documents for criminal history questions, ready to upload. See Uploading document instructions
