Renew a License 

 

NEW Renewal Requirement Effective September 1, 2020

For licensees who complete the renewal process on or after 9/01/2020 regardless of their license expiration date, a minimum of 1 CCU of Human Trafficking Prevention Training approved by the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is required as mandated in HB 2059 during the 86th Legislature in 2019. 

Instructions for entering the course on the Continuing Competence Activity Summary will be available during the online renewal process beginning September 1, 2020.  

Read Human Trafficking Prevention Training for more information. 

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 online verification system, the licensee may not practice until the renewal process has been completed. 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.

 The requirements for renewal are

  • Renewal application and fee*                                                                                                                                                                          
  • Approved continuing competency units (CCUs) as reflected on the CC Activities           Summary 
                   PT = 30 CCUs 
                   PTA = 20 CCUs                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
  • Passing score on the Jurisprudence Assessment Module (TX JAM)**   
  • Criminal Background Check obtained via Fingerprinting***
  • Human Trafficking Prevention Training (for renewals on or after 9/01/2020)      
  • 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. 

** The TX JAM fulfills the jurisprudence and ethics/professional responsibility renewal requirement. More information on the TX JAM is available here.

***Licensees need to comply with the 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. See New Fingerprinting Requirement Effective 1/01/2019 for details.

If you are unable to complete the fingerprinting requirement due to COVID-19 restrictions and IdentoGo location closures or limited appointments, you may renew your license if you meet all of the other renewal requirements. You will receive an email from staff when your renewal application is processed informing you of when you need to submit your fingerprinting requirement by.

To avoid a delay in  the renewal of your license, complete all required items at least several weeks prior to your license expiration date or the date you intend to renew.
