Renewing Your New Mexico Electrical License

Step 1: Find your license expiration date.

Electrical licenses in the state of New Mexico must be renewed every 3 years. The renewal deadline is the last day of the month of the 3-year anniversary of the original date of issue. So if your license was issued on July 10, 2016, your renewal deadline would be July 31, 2019.
