PT renew intro

Important!  Read Before Renewing!

Licensees using Internet Explorer as their browser may experience problems with their renewals, especially if using an older version of Internet Explorer.  There have been reports of error messages of "Session Expired" with the JP Exam, or “Wrong Exam” messages.  We suggest you try Google Chrome or Firefox, for example, as alternatives to Internet Explorer.   

Renew a License

Effective March 1, 2015: All licensees will transition to Birth-Month renewal after current expiration date. For more information, please read PT Renewals Transitioning to Birth Month.    

All required items listed below must be submitted prior to the expiration date to avoid late fees.  If you are late 90 days or more in renewing your license, you must submit proof of your CCUs with the paper renewal application. See PT Rules, Chapter 341. License Renewal for more information.

If a license expires before updated license information is displayed on the Board's website, the licensee may not practice while waiting for the renewal process to be complete. A licensee is subject to disciplinary action if he/she continues to practice after the license expires. 

A license may be renewed at any time in the three months prior to its expiration date, with no change in expiration date.

The State's online payment system is occasionally unavailable due to scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and other issues beyond the agency's control.  Renew early if possible.

The requirements for renewal are: 

  • Renewal application and fee                                                                                                         NOTE: Licenses in inactive or retired status and late renewals must be completed using the paper renewal form.
  • Approved continuing competency units (CCUs) as reflected on the CC Activities Report
    PT = 30 CCUs 
    PTA = 20 CCUs 
    NOTE: All licensees must have 2 CCUs in ethics/professional responsibility specifically approved to meet the ethics/professional responsibility renewal requirement as part of the total number of required CCUs. To search for approved activities/courses, or to get an application for CC approval, visit TPTA's website.
  • Passing score on the Jurisprudence exam                                                                                  NOTE: The exam does not count toward the required continuing competence activities.
  • Social Security Number, or a notarized affidavit stating that one has never been issued to the licensee.

Renewal after the expiration date incurs a late fee.  Currently, late fees are as follows:

  • Late less than 90 days - one-half the renewal fee
  • Late 90 days - 1 year:  equal to the renewal fee
