*PASSPORT-TYPE PHOTO: A recent, 2 in. x 2 in. passport-type photo must be submitted to the Board either attached to the Restoration Form or digitally.             

If the photo is attached to the Restoration form, the photo must be on standard photographic paper. Computer-printed photos are not acceptable and will delay the processing of your application. For information regarding passport-type photo requirements, click here.   

OR                                                                    

A digital photo can be emailed if it adheres to the U.S. Department of State (DOS) specifications found here   

Email a digital photo as an attachment to exam@ptot.texas.gov. Include your name as it appears on your application and your birthdate in the text of the email.  

 

**LICENSE VERIFICATION: Your license status in the states in which you hold or have held a license will be verified online by staff once your application is received. At least one verification needs to show current, active licensure without any encumbrance. 

States and territories that do not have sufficient information on their websites for primary source verification and are excluded from staff verification are Alabama, Arkansas, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Wyoming, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. If you hold or have held a license from any of the excluded states/territories, contact that state board and request license verification be sent to Texas. The verification can be emailed to exam@ptot.texas.gov or mailed directly from the other state board to the address below.
