You can renew your Texas electrical license quickly if you know what the process involves and plan ahead. You’ll need to complete a brief continuing education course and then apply for renewal with the state. Let’s walk through the process step by step so you can prepare.

How to Renew Your Texas Electrical License

Step 1: Find Your Electrical License Expiration Date

An electrical license issued in the state of Texas must be renewed every year. Keep your date of issue on the calendar so you know when it’s time to renew. If you don’t know when your license was issued, you can look up your details on the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) website.

Step 2: Complete Your Continuing Education

Electricians in Texas must complete 4 hours of Texas electrical continuing education every year in order to renew their electrical license.

  1. My license expires 07/17/2019. I cant afford renewal until 07/18. Can i still renew at that point or must i apply for a new license.

    1. It depends what state you are licensed in – if it is Texas, you will be able to renew but there will be a late fee added to the renewal fee.

  2. Does the education part have to be with jade learning? There is Teces.org that say they also offer a course for continuing education?

    1. There are different providers of continuing education for electrical license renewal. Our courses are approved by TDLR for the required hours, they work very well for busy electricians who want to take the course a little bit at a time, and there is no cost to register or get started.
