Renewing a License


Waiver for Active Duty Military Licensees

The Board is required to temporarily waive the renewal fees, continuing education requirements, and other renewal requirements as determined by the Board, for any licensee who is called to active duty as a member of the US Armed Forces or the California National Guard, if certain conditions are met.

Licensees eligible for this temporary waiver must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Possess a current and valid license when called to active duty; and
  • Provide written documentation that substantiates the licensee’s call to active duty.

Renewal requirements are only waived for the period of time the licensee is serving on active duty. Licensees must provide the Board with a notice of discharge date within 60 days of receipt.

All private practice is prohibited under the waiver. A licensee may not return to private practice until after they have complied with renewal requirements as required by the Board (BPC section 114.3).
