Texas Electrical License Renewal
Since Texas electricians need to renew their licenses annually, it’s a process you want to stay on top of. While other states give electrical licensees several years between renewals, you need to make sure you complete yours each year.
What, exactly, does that entail? If you’re wondering how to renew an electrical license in Texas, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s the how-to for apprentices, journeymen, masters, and sign electricians.
How to renew my apprentice electrician license
Each year, your license expires on the date it was initially issued. To prevent that, you need to do three things for apprentice electrician license renewal:
- Complete your apprentice electrician continuing education. You need four hours during each renewal cycle. Fortunately, you can take these hours from a TDLR-approved online education provider, meaning you can do them from your computer, phone, or tablet whenever it’s convenient for you.
- Complete the online renewal application. Here’s the link to the webpage to start the process. You’ll need your license number and social security number to log in.
- Pay the renewal fee. It’s just $20 for apprentice electrician license renewal.
If you have an electrical sign apprentice license, the process is pretty much the same, but you’ll use this link for your online renewal application.
How to renew my journeyman electrician license
You might think that the journeyman electrician license renewal process would be more involved because of the higher level of licensure. Actually, though, the TDLR pretty much requires the same amount of work from you. To renew each year, you need to:
- Get 4 electrician continuing education hours. Again, you can take these online and at your own pace. If you choose online CE, just make sure it’s from a TDLR-approved provider.
- Send in your online renewal application. Here’s your link to start the process. You’ll need your social security and license number.
- Pay the renewal fee. This is really the only part of the process that differs. While apprentices only owe $20 each year, you’ll pay $30 for journeyman electrician license renewal.
If you’re a journeyman sign, industrial, or lineman electrician, you need the same CE hours and pay the same $30 fee. But your link to the online renewal application is different, so here you go:
Journeyman sign electrician renewal
Journeyman industrial electrician renewal
Journeyman lineman renewal
Master electrician license renewal
By the time you reach master status, you probably already know how to renew an electrical license. But to make your life easier, here’s a quick recap of your steps:
- Complete your CE. Like all other electrical licensees, you need four hours of CE each year. You can take these online to knock them out as easily as possible.
- Send in the renewal application. Start the online renewal process here.
- Pay the renewal fee. For master electrician license renewal, you owe $45 each year.
Master sign electricians, you also need four CE hours and owe $45 for renewal. You can start your online renewal at this link.
