The 2020 individual license and business renewal season is upon us and DPR wants you to be first in line to renew your license DPR license or certificate. Renew early and avoid the stress and worry of waiting until the end of the year. If your surname or business name begins with A-L, this is your year and now is your time.
Individual license and certificate renewal application packets were mailed in August. Business license renewal packets were mailed in September. Please check your mailboxes for your packets or go online to www.cdpr.ca.gov and download a blank application here: https://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/license/renewal_packets/individual_renewal_packet.pdf
- Submit renewal application form
- Submit summary of continuing education (CE) hours (if applicable) and FAA pilot certifications (if applicable)
- Submit renewal fee(s)
Business owners must also submit their business license renewal application, proof of financial responsibility (where applicable), and the appropriate fee to renew their business license(s).
Tips and Reminders!
DPR approved CE hours must be obtained during the valid period listed on your license card (where applicable). To determine the valid period, refer to the “Date of Issue” and “Valid Through” dates on your card. Including a copy of your CE certificates with your application aids us in processing your application more quickly.
There are currently many online and correspondence-style courses available that can be taken during the day, evening, or weekends, and can be completed from home to satisfy your CE requirements. You can find continuously running online or correspondence courses here: https://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/license/cont_ed_cfm/CE_Continuous_2020.pdf.
If you are still in need of courses, you can find webinars, which are available on a specific date and time, by checking the date-specific CE courses available: https://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/license/cont_ed_cfm/classes.htm. Courses available as webinars are indicated as such in the course title.
Due to the many DPR-approved online and correspondence-style courses that are already available and new classes being added weekly, DPR is not considering a renewal extension for the 2020 renewal season.
DPR does not provide individuals information regarding their CE hours. It is the responsibility of the licensee to track their hours and provide them to DPR at the time of their renewal.
Determine the amount of CE hours your license(s) requires by reviewing the Continuing Education Hours Chart on our web page: https://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/license/cerequire.pdf.
If you are missing any certificates of completion or have questions about CE hours earned for a course, please contact the sponsor of the course in question. Course sponsor information can be found on the DPR web page sorted by date: http://www.cdpr.ca.gov/docs/license/cont_ed_cfm/classes.htm
DPR encourages you to submit your renewal applications before November 1, 2020 to best ensure that you are renewed before your license or certificate expires.
