License Renewal



Information About Renewals

Home Inspector and Home Inspector Trainee licenses expire on August 31 of odd years (e.g., 2019, 2021).

A few months before the expiration date of your license, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access your online renewal application in DELPROS, our online portal. To complete the online renewal application, you must log in to your account, answer questions, and use a credit/debit card to pay your renewal fee.

All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, are sent by email only. It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date so that all the notices we send reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click on Manage Profile link in DELPROS.


Renewing Active Licenses

An active license must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked to attest that you have completed the required continuing education units (CE).

For information about CE requirements, see Section 16.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations or click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage.  After the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be selected for audit of their CE.


Inactive & Reactivating Licenses

If you hold an active license but are not practicing in Delaware, you may request to place your license in an inactive status by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS and paying the status change fee . You must request inactive status before the expiration date of your license.  If your expiration date has passed, you must first renew your license, then request inactive status because you must be in active status to go inactive. You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status.

You may keep your license on inactive status for up to three years.  To resume practicing in Delaware, you must reactivate your license by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS and completing 40 hours of CE within the previous two years.

If you fail to reactivate your license during the three-year period, your license will terminate. If you wish to resume practicing after your license has terminated, you must apply in DELPROS as a new applicant.

For more information about inactive licenses, see Section 13.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.


Renewing Expired Licenses

If you do not renew your license 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 six months after the expiration date in DELPROS. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can file a late renewal application, do not resume practicing until your license is actually renewed to active status. The late period is not a “grace period.”

If you fail to renew within six months, the license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware, you must apply in DELPROS as a new applicant. See Section 12.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.
