licensure renewal deadline 2019

The Basics

    • Renewal for Professional Engineers licensed in Florida opened on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022.
    • The deadline to renew is midnight Feb. 28, 2023. Current/active licenses that are not renewed become delinquent on March 1, 2023, and a $25 delinquent fee will be added to your renewal fee.

Continuing Education

  • You are no longer required to report continuing education to the Board.
  • You are responsible for retaining for four years all receipts, certificates, and other documents as necessary to show completion of CE, which you will have to produce if you are audited. (Rule 61G15-22.006, Florida Administrative Code, Demonstrating Compliance)
  • Questions regarding continuing education should be directed to the CE desk at (850) 521-0500, ext. 113, or cedesk@fbpe.org.

Before You Begin

  • Please read the License Renewal page, which includes important information about status changes.
  • FBPE cannot accept credit cards or checks over the phone.
  • After you have successfully renewed your license, a PDF of your license will be automatically emailed to you within 30 minutes at the email address that you used to log into your myfloridalicense.com account.
  • Please note: Typically there will be three options on each page during the renewal process:
    • A button, such as “Next” or “Submit,” to continue the process;
    • “Previous” to go one step back; and
    • “Cancel” to end registration (which will result in the loss of all information you have entered).
