PT renew intro

Renew a License 

NEW - Individuals who renew their license on or after 1/01/2019 will need to comply with the new fingerprinting requirement if they have not previously submitted fingerprints for initial issuance of a TX license or for a prior TX license renewal or restoration.

To avoid a delay in  the renewal of your license, complete the fingerprinting process several weeks prior to your license expiration date or the date you intend to renew.

Please see New Fingerprinting Requirement Effective 1/01/2019 for details.

All required items listed below must be submitted prior to the expiration date to avoid late fees.  If you are late 90 days or more in renewing your license, you must submit proof of your CCUs with the paper renewal application. See PT Rules, Chapter 341. License Renewal for more information.

If a license expires before updated license information is displayed on the Board's website, the licensee may not practice while waiting for the renewal process to be complete. A licensee is subject to disciplinary action if he/she continues to practice after the license expires. 

A license may be renewed at any time in the three months prior to its expiration date, with no change in expiration date.

The State's online payment system is occasionally unavailable due to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and other issues beyond the agency's control.  Renew early if possible to avoid last minute delays in renewing.

Individuals renewing their license are required to take the PT Board's new Texas Jurisprudence Assessment Module (TX JAM). The TX JAM replaces both the previous Jurisprudence (JP) Exam and the ethics/professional responsibility renewal requirement. For more information, click here.

 The requirements for renewal are

  • Renewal application and fee*                                                                                                                                                                          
  • Approved continuing competency units (CCUs) as reflected on the CC Activities              Report **
                   PT = 30 CCUs 
                   PTA = 20 CCUs                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
  • Passing score on the Jurisprudence Assessment Module**                                                                                                                                                                               
  • Social Security Number, or a notarized affidavit stating that one has never been                 issued to the licensee.


Renewal after the expiration date incurs a late fee.  Currently, late fees are as follows:

  • Late less than 90 days - one-half the renewal fee
  • Late 90 days - 1 year:  equal to the renewal fee 

 * Inactive and Late Renewals are unable to renew online and must submit a paper renewal application. 

** Licensees renewing on or after June 1, 2017 must complete the new TX JAM as part of their renewal requirement instead of the current Jurisprudence exam and the ethics/professional responsibility requirement.
