Renewing Your License

About On-Line Renewals

Prior to renewing online, each licensee must submit a “secure and verifiable document”  for identification purposes and a “notarized affidavit” as detailed in the Lawful Presence Verification form.

Click here to access the Lawful Presence Verification form.

This information must be submitted to the GREC either in person, via fax to 404/656-6650, via e-mail at verify@grec.state.ga.us , via courier, or via U.S. mail. The information must be legible.

If you typically renew online, please allow five business days from the submission of your information for the GREC to notate your license record so that you will be able to renew online.

You can renew your license 24 hours a day, seven days a week, up to 120 days (4 months) prior to the renewal date. You must renew by midnight of your renewal due date to avoid lapsing and incurring a late fee.

You will need a password to renew online. If you already have a password for the online transactions, use the same password. If you do not, click here for instructions on how to establish a password.

No Grace Period

There is NO grace period if the due date falls on a weekend or holiday.

Firm Licenses
