Dec. 17 - Deadline Nears for 40,000 Business Licensees

Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report

December 17, 2018 - By the end of December, chiropractic examiners, land surveyors, landscape architects, master barbers, professional engineers, psychologists, and veterinarians are encouraged to visit the Secretary of State’s Professional Licensing Board’s website and renew their licenses. The deadline to renew these licenses is December 31, 2018. Currently, there are over 40,000 licensees up for renewal.

“With the deadline to renew professional licenses for 40,000 individuals right around the corner, I am encouraging these Georgians to take advantage of our online resources to quickly complete this process, and we stand ready to assist them, if needed,” stated Secretary Crittenden. “The Professional Licensing Boards Division is committed to making it as easy as possible for Georgia’s workforce to navigate our licensing procedures and stay compliant with state law and rules.”

Once a license holder submits payment and verifies renewal, they can print a payment receipt and their professional license. Please submit continuing education documents if selected for an audit. For any necessary assistance, consult the office’s step-by-step instructions, contact the Professional Licensing Boards Division by calling (478) 207-2440, or email office staff.

Late fees are assessed if license holder fails to renew before the deadline. Georgia law prohibits professional license holders from practicing without a license, which includes an expired license. After the late renewal period, licenses that have not been renewed will lapse, at which time license holders must apply for reinstatement and meet all application requirements. Reinstatement of any license is at the discretion of the board.

Businesses can check the licensure status of an individual or firm or contact the Professional Licensing Boards Division by calling (478) 207-2440 or emailing office staff.
