License Renewal Is a TDLR Online Service

You look at your barber or cosmetology license

and it expires in a few weeks; panic and anxiety

sets in because you must have a current license to

work. Texas Department of Licensing and Regula-

tion (TDLR) staff is here to help and suggests you

first take a deep breath, and then begin renewing

your license online.

STEP 1- FILE A RENEWAL APPLICATION

Filing an online renewal application is fast

and easy. You may file at a time and place con-

venient for you by visiting:

http://www.license.state. tx.us/cosmet/cosmetforms.htm fo

r cosmetologists or

http://www.license.state.tx.us/barbers/barberforms.htm fo

r

barbers.

Texas barbers don’t require

continuing education to renew a

license, so once a barber submits

his or her renewal application the

work is done.

Texas Cosmetology Rules re-

quire cosmetologists to complete

TDLR approved continuing education (CE) cours-

es to renew their license. But, cosmetologists

are allowed to file the renewal application form

before completing their CE courses. Remember:

filing before your license expiration date elimi-

nates late fees.

STEP 2 – CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSES

Cosmetology CE hours must be completed

within the term of the license being renewed.

They can be completed during the renewal

process but must be completed before you can

receive your renewed license. Remember: begin

the process by submitting a renewal application

to TDLR and then complete the CE hours because

you can’t work without a license.

There are 162 CE providers offering 365 CE

courses. Once you determine which teaching

method, online or classroom, works best for you

visit the TDLR website to find a Department ap-

proved provider:

http://www.license.state.tx.us/ce/cecos.htm .

TDLR encourages you

to complete your continu-

ing education hours early.

But for those who like to

cut things close, we sug-

gest you take a minute to

mark your calendar when

you need to renew your

license and… remember the two steps:

1. File a renewal application before your li-

cense expires and avoid a late fee,

2. Complete your continuing education before

the expiration date and receive your new license.
