There are 2 ways you can renew – online or by mail.

It’s faster and cheaper to renew online.

No refunds

If your renewal application is turned down or you make a mistake and have to reapply, you won’t get your fee back. This is because the fee covers what it costs us to process the application.

For more information about the rare cases we may give a refund, you can contact us.

Temporary certificate to work while training not needed for renewals

You don’t need to apply for a temporary certificate when applying for renewal. This is because your current licence or certificate stays active while we process the application – even if it passes the expiry date on the badge. We’ll show this information in the public register so people know your licence or certificate is still active.


Make sure you:

  1. find your licence or certificate number (this is on your badge)
  2. fill in the form
  3. include a cheque for the fee
  4. give a suitable passport style photograph
  5. give details of your identification (ID)
  6. give proof of training and skills

Got these ready?
