What if I held a journeyman license in a Texas municipality that no longer issues licenses?
If you hold a journeyman license in a Texas municipality that has stopped issuing them you can submit and application within 90 days of when the issuing of licenses has stopped. You will then be issued a state-wide license from the TDLR.
