How do I renew my license?

Go to the board website linked below. Select “online Services” from the menu bar, then click on “My Services” or “Log In”, then click on “New Users Register Here” to start. Once you are on the “Log In” page, you need to register first. In the renewal notice letter you received from the Board, you will find a “Security Code”. You need that “Security Code” to register with the Board’s Online Service.
