Renewal Process

At least 90 days before your license expires, the department will mail you a renewal notification postcard to your last known mailing address of record. You will have until midnight on the day your license expires to renew. Failure to renew an active or inactive license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status. Failure by a delinquent licensee to become active or inactive before the expiration of the current licensure cycle renders the license null and void without any further action by the board or the department.


Renewal Instructions:

  1. Go to and click the "Renew A License" button.
  2. Enter your Personal Identifying Information (PII), then click the Login button.
  3. Confirm or update your MQA Services Account email address, then click the "Continue" button.
  4. You are now in the Dashboard. During renewals, a "Renew My License" option will populate no later than 90 days prior to your license expiration date. ( Note: If you do not see the "Renew My License" option, please check back at a later time. )

*** If the "PII Failed" screen displays, click the "Other Login Option" button and enter your existing User ID and password to access your account.***

Additional Information 

  • The process of renewing a license may take 7-10 business days. Initiating contact to confirm the receipt of fees or the status of your license prior to this time will not expedite the renewal process.
  • Beginning July 1, 2023, licensees will be able to retrieve renewed licenses, at no cost, by logging into the MQA Online Services Portal. The PDF version of the license will be available under the “Licensure Documents” menu on the licensee’s personal dashboard. Should you need a duplicate license prior to July 1st, please reach out to the MQA Customer Contact Center at 850-488-0595 for assistance.
  • You may renew online if you have a credit or debit card to complete the transaction. Please note that you can now renew online, print a copy of your application summary and mail it with your cashier’s check or money order to:
    Division of Medical Quality Assurance
    P.O. Box 6320
    Tallahassee, FL 32314-6320
  • If you are renewing your license after the expiration date and your status still indicates Clear/Active or Clear/Inactive, you will be assessed a delinquency fee. The delinquency fee will be in addition to your renewal fees.
  • If your license was Delinquent/Active or Delinquent/Inactive before the renewal deadline, it will be moved to Null and Void status after the renewal deadline. A Null & Void license cannot be reactivated. If you wish to be licensed in Florida and have a Null & Void license you will need to reapply for licensure.
  • A licensee whose license is in inactive status for more than two consecutive biennial licensure cycles may be required to demonstrate competency to resume active practice before reactivating the license. Sitting for a special purpose examination or by completing other reactivation requirements may be required
