Frequently Asked Questions
What if I can't get logged in?
The most common reason you cannot log in is that your Social Security Number is not on file with the Board office. You must contact the Board office.
Do I need a printer available when I renew online?
You must have a printer available to print your license card and a confirmation statement.
Can I change my address online?
Yes. You can change your address at any time online, not just during your renewal period.
What is the renewal time period?
There is a 120 day renewal window. Renewals will be available online beginning 60 days before your expiration date and ending 60 days after your expiration date. After that time your license will be cancelled and you must reinstate. However, you cannot do work in Kansas after the expiration date.
Can I get an extension of my renewal time period?
No. There is a 60 day grace period built into the renewal process. If you do not renew your license within 60 days after the expiration date, you must reinstate. See the web page for a Reinstatement application.
If I have dual licenses can I renew both of them at the same time?
The windows for renewing may overlap. However, you must renew each license individually.
Can I renew my business entity's Certificate of Authorization online?
The schedule for business entities to renew is tied to the first letter of the name of the business entity. Names beginning with A-L renew by December 31 of even numbered years. Names beginning with M-Z renew by December 31 of odd numbered years. You will need the Certificate of Authorization number and a PIN number, which is included in the renewal notice. Contact the Board office if you have questions.
