Licensing Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do I obtain written verification of a license?
    Send a written request with the fee of $25. Verifications that are accompanied by the appropriate fee are processed and mailed daily. If a request comes in without the fee it is forwarded to the business office for billing prior to being mailed.
  2. When do I renew my license?
    On an annual basis, each person licensed by the Board shall renew with the Board. The renewal period shall be from February 1 to January 31. The Board shall mail out notices at least thirty (30) calendar days prior to the expiration date to every person holding an active license. It shall be the affirmative duty of each licensee to comply with renewal requirements. No grace period beyond that provided by law, 59 O.S. ss2065 shall be allowed. The Board will not hear requests for extensions for renewal or exemption from any renewal requirement that the licensee did not receive renewal materials.
  3. When will I get a new wallet card?
    Renewals are posted daily as they arrive at the Board office. Each Monday, wallet cards are printed and mailed for everyone who renewed the previous week. If you submitted your payment and do not receive a new card within the next couple of weeks, contact the Board office. Please renew early in order to receive your new card prior to the old card expiring.
