PE Licensure Renewal Ended Feb. 28, 2023.
Renewal for all Professional Engineers licensed in Florida has ended.
- Continuing-education hours for the upcoming renewal period should have been completed by midnight Feb. 28, 2023.
- The renewal deadline was Feb. 28, 2023. Current, active licenses that were not renewed became delinquent on March 1, 2023, and delinquent licenses become null and void.
If you did not renew your Florida PE license by Feb. 28, 2023, then your license is delinquent. The cost of renewing a delinquent license is $123.75, which includes the renewal fee of $98.75 (including a mandatory $5 unlicensed activity fee), and a delinquent fee of $25. You must also pay any outstanding fees from the previous renewal period.
If your license was delinquent and you did not renew it during this biennium, your license status became null and void on March 1, 2023, and you will need to apply to have it reinstated and pay a $155 fee.
- If you have a DBPR account that was set up during a previous renewal, you do not need to set up another account. Go to myfloridalicense.com and log into your existing account.
- If you have never renewed your license online, you must have your Social Security number in DBPR’s licensing system in order to set up your account. If the number in the database is incorrect, the system will not allow you to set up your account. If you experience any problems, please call the Board office at (850) 521-0500 and select “Renewal” to speak to a representative.
*** ATTENTION NEW LICENSEES AFTER MARCH 2021 ***
If you passed your Principles & Practice of Engineering exam between March 1, 2021, and Oct. 1, 2022, and became licensed in Florida during the 2021-23 biennium, you are required to pay only the fee to renew your license. You do not need to complete the 18 hours of continuing education for this renewal cycle. Please see Rule 61G15-22.009, Florida Administration Code, Exemptions From Continuing Education Requirements.
However, you must still take an Advanced Building Code course if your engineering practice includes the design of engineering works or systems in connection with buildings, structures, or facilities and systems covered by the Florida Building Code.
Effective with the 2023-25 biennium, you will be responsible for completing your continuing education hours and paying the renewal fee to successfully renew your license by Feb. 28. 2025.
If you have any questions about renewing your license, please call us at (850) 521-0500 and select “Renewal” to speak to a representative, or email email@example.com.
Pursuant to section 455.02(1), F.S., any member of the Armed Forces of the United States may request that his or her professional license be placed in a military status, without paying dues or fees, or performing any other act such as continuing education. This status will remain in effect for as long as he or she is a member of the U.S. Armed Forces on active duty and for a period of six months after discharge from active duty as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States, if he or she is not engaged in his or her licensed profession or vocation in the private sector for profit.
If you are a Florida professional engineer and meet these requirements, you simply need to inform the Board and provide your military orders placing you on active duty. Once you are discharged from active duty, you must notify the Board within six months of discharge and submit a Form DD-214. No continuing education or fee is required to return your license to a current and active status. If you have any questions regarding an active military status, please contact the Board office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (850) 521-0500 and select “Renewal.”
