License Renewal Fees:
Due to the voluntary nature of the Licensed Private Investigator regulation, a significantly lower number of private investigators applied for licensure in the first year of the program. The renewal fee amount is necessary to fund the program’s shortfall in revenue due to the low volume of licenses.
As you may know, the renewal fee is evaluated each year and set to meet the budgetary needs of the program; however, it is difficult to predict if costs of regulation will decrease or increase in the future. Renewal fees help offset the operational expenses of the program and is an integral part of our commitment to work diligently to provide consumer protection.
If renewed on or before February 28, 2013 :
The Active Licensed Private Investigator renewal fee is: $644
If renewed on or after March 1, 2013 , a $15 delinquency charge is applied and the totals are:

We will not request credit card numbers or checking account numbers via telephone. You will only be able to pay for your renewal online, in person at our office or by mail with the necessary renewal packet.

When your renewal period opens you will receive a yellow RENEWAL NOTICE POSTCARD that will direct you to this site. There is no personal information on this postcard (other than your name, address and license number). If you have accessed this page before receipt of the postcard and renewed your license then you may disregard that notice.
During the licensing process, the Division asked whether you have ever been disciplined in any state, arrested, charged, convicted or pled guilty to a crime. After initial licensure, all licensees have a duty to report subsequent felony convictions and disciplinary actions. Some must also report misdemeanors related to the specific practice. Failure to disclose could constitute grounds alone for revocation of your license.
Licensure is a privilege, not a right. In order to obtain and retain the privilege, you must be completely honest. The Division conducts audits of its licensing database against several criminal and national disciplinary databases, which allows the Division to track subsequent criminal conduct and disciplinary actions after initial licensure.
An arrest, disciplinary action or subsequent criminal conviction does not mean an automatic revocation of your license. The board or program will look at the facts surrounding the criminal conduct and disciplinary action to determine whether you are still fit for licensure. Your license will not necessarily be revoked if you have been disciplined, arrested, charged or convicted, but your license will most likely be revoked if you fail to disclose it.
If you are finished reading the above instructions you may want to print this page before you begin the online renewal process.
