Several weeks before the expiration date, a renewal notice will be mailed to the address on the record. This notice will explain how to access the online renewal application. To complete the online renewal application, you must use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

Renewing Land Surveyor Licenses

To renew a license, you will need to provide information about your personal development hours (PDHs) and seal. For information on PDH requirements, see Section 10.0 of the Board's Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be randomly selected for audit of their PDHs.

Renewing Certificates of Authorization

In addition to completing the online renewal application, you must submit a Verification of Land Surveyor in Charge Information form to update information on the management of the business. The form will be enclosed with the renewal notice and also available online.

Renewing Expired Licenses

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice surveying while your Land Surveyor license is expired. It is also illegal to offer land surveying services in Delaware while your Certificate of Authorization is expired.

To resume practicing or offering land surveying services in Delaware, you must renew your license. You may submit a late renewal application for a period of six months after the expiration date. A late fee equal to twice the amount of the renewal fee is payable in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you have six months to submit a late renewal application, this period is not a "grace period." Do not resume offering land surveying services in Delaware until the license is actually renewed.

When the license has been expired for six months, it will terminate. To resume land surveying in Delaware, you must reapply for licensure.
