Renewal is currently open.
Renewal is currently open for all Professional Engineers and engineering firms licensed in Florida. Deadline for renewal is Feb. 28, 2019. After that date, your current PE license or Certificate of Authorization will no longer be valid.
The usual fee for PE license renewal is $98.75, which includes a $5 fee to combat unlicensed activity that FBPE must charge pursuant to Section 497.140, Florida Statutes, Fees. However, the renewal fee for current and active PE licenses is discounted $10, to $88.75 (including the unlicensed activity fee), through Jan. 15, 2019. This discount is to encourage Professional Engineers to renew earlier rather than later. (Delinquent PE licenses are not eligible for the discount.)
The fee to renew a Certificate of Authorization for an engineering firm is $98.75, which includes a $5 fee to combat unlicensed activity that FBPE must charge pursuant to Chapter 497.140, Florida Statutes, Fees. Please remember to renew the PE license of your Engineer of Record first or else the CA will not renew.
In a major change this renewal cycle, you must print your own PE license or Certificate of Authorization. After you have successfully renewed your license and submitted payment, a new license will be automatically generated and emailed to the address associated with your myfloridalicense.com account within 30 minutes. Licenses will no longer be sent via postal mail.
If you did not renew your Florida Professional Engineer license or Certificate of Authorization by Feb. 28, 2017, the end of the previous biennium, then your license is now delinquent. If your license is currently delinquent and you do not renew in this cycle, your license status will become null and void on Feb. 28, 2019, and you will need to apply for a new license.
The cost of renewing your delinquent license for the 2017-2019 biennium is $123.75, which includes the renewal fee of $98.75 (including the unlicensed activity fee) and a delinquent fee of $25. Delinquent licenses are not eligible for the $10 early renewal discount.
