Renew a Service Technician License
Application and Fee
To renew your license, submit a completed online renewal form and pay the non-refundable application fee of $30.
A Service Technician license is valid for two years from the date of issue.
Renewal of Expired Licenses
If your license has expired, you may not perform any device maintenance activities until your license has been renewed.
If your license has expired within the past 18 months, then you may renew by paying an increased fee, as shown below.
If your license has been expired for over 18 months, but less than 3 years, you must submit a completed Request to Executive Director for Expired License Renewal Form (PDF) and include the renewal fee.
Your fee will depend on how long your license has been expired:
|Date of Expiration||Renewal Fee|
|90 days or less||1.5 times the normal fee|
|91 days – 18 months||2 times the normal fee|
|18 – 36 months||2 times the normal fee **|
|36+ months||Non-renewable ***|
** Licenses that have been expired for over 18 months must include a completed Request to Executive Director for Expired License Renewal Form (PDF).
*** Licenses that have been expired for over 3 years cannot be renewed, and you will need to re-apply for a license as a new applicant.
Applicants with Criminal Convictions
If any controlling person in your company has ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor (other than a minor traffic violation) or pleaded guilty or no contest (resulting in a deferred adjudication) to any in-state, out-of-state or federal criminal offense, you must provide a completed Criminal History Questionnaire (PDF) along with your application materials.
TDLR will conduct a criminal history background check on all persons who apply for a license. Criminal convictions are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Licenses may be denied based on the nature of the conviction and how long prior to the application the conviction occurred. Depending on your criminal history, a review can take from one to six weeks to complete.
Individuals may request TDLR review their criminal background before actually applying for a license. TDLR uses the same process for this pre-application evaluation as the process described below. See the Criminal History Evaluation Letter page for more information.
Please see the Guidelines for License Applicants with Criminal Convictions, which describe the process that TDLR uses to determine whether a criminal conviction renders an applicant an unsuitable candidate for the license, or whether a conviction warrants revocation or suspension of a license previously granted.
