Information About Renewal Applications for All Licenses

Electrician licenses expire on June 30 of even years (e.g., 2018, 2020). Inspection Agency permits expire on June 30 each year.

Several weeks before the permit expiration date, a renewal notice will be sent to the email 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 Electrician Licenses

To renew an active license, you must attest to completing the required continuing education (CE) and meeting the liability insurance requirement. For information on these requirements, see Sections 6.2, 6.3 and 8.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.

If your license is in inactive status, you must renew it by the expiration date in order to maintain the inactive status. You must attest to completing the required CE, but liability insurance is not required for inactive licenses.


Renewing an Expired Electrician License

If you do not complete renewal before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is expired.

You may file a late renewal application up to one year after the expiration date. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can file a late renewal application, it is illegal to practice until your active license is actually renewed. The late period is not a “grace period.” All late renewals will be audited.

If you fail to renew by the end of the one-year late period, your license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must must reapply for licensure.


Renewing Inspection Agency Permits

You must provide information about the inspectors employed by the agency, the agency’s insurance policies, all offices operated by the agency, business hours and a schedule of rates and charges.

There is no late renewal for Inspection Agency permits.  If you fail to renew before the expiration date, your permit will terminate. To resume operating, you must reapply (24 Del. C. §1421 and Section 15 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations). See Inspection Agency.
