Online renewals are not currently available. The renewal period begins January 1, at which time the online renewal system will be available.  If you did not renew on time, please send the renewal fee and late payment to us by mail or in person.


Having trouble?


If you're having trouble, please see our frequently asked questions or contact us.  We're here to help you renew online.  Remember that if you renew online, you'll get your license back much faster.  In most cases, licenses that are renewed online are mailed the next business day.  But licenses renewed by mail may take weeks.


Why renew online?


  • Get your license back in days rather than weeks
  • Immediate confirmation of payment while you wait for your license
  • Simple process, with the option to update your mailing address
  • Most major credit cards accepted (except American Express)


Who is eligible?


Anyone who has an up-to-date license for any of the following license types can renew:


  • Registered barber
  • Apprentice barber
  • Barber instructor
  • Barber shop
  • Barber school


You will not be eligible to renew online if your license is not current or if you have any outstanding obligations (such as fines or non-compliance with child support).  You must renew by May 31 to use the online system.
