Renewal Dates

  • Licenses renew once every two years, unless otherwise specified by statute. Each licensee is responsible to renew his/her license prior to the expiration date shown on the current license.


  • Unlike many other states, Utah's license renewal schedule is not based on the licensee's date of initial licensure. Under Utah's renewal system, all licenses in each occupation or profession expire as a group on the same day every two years. Therefore, the length of a licensee's first renewal cycle depends on how far into the current renewal cycle initial licensure was obtained. Each renewal cycle thereafter is for a full two years.


  • At least 60 days prior to the expiration date of a license, DOPL will mail a renewal notice to the licensee's address of record as provided to DOPL by the individual licensee. (Failure to notify DOPL of an address change could prevent a licensee from timely receiving renewal notification and other important correspondence from DOPL.)


  • New licenses issued during the last four months of an established renewal cycle will be licensed for a full two-year renewal period plus the period of time remaining in the current renewal cycle. However, renewal fees are not prorated.
