INSTRUCTIONS AND GENERAL INFORMATION FOR
RENEWAL OF ENGINEER’S AND BOILER OPERATOR’S LICENSES
1.Important Note: A first-time license is valid for only 1 year from the date it is issued. To keep the license active and to avoid a late fee and/or penalty, you must renew the licenses before the date of expiration. You may renew your license for a 1-year period or a 3-year period [N.J.A.C. 12:90-8.19(a)].
2.Expiration Date Format: MM/DD/YYYY = Month/Date/Year (for example, 02/25/2016 is February 25, 2016).
3.Renewing a License – A license may be renewed 60 days before it expires, or when you receive a
“Renewal Notification” from this agency. Apply to renew your license by completing this application.
4.Acceptable Renewals – Licenses may be renewed if any outstanding penalties or judgments are paid, and if a license has not been expired more than 3 years. (NOTE: If a license renewal is more than 3 years overdue, the license is inactive and therefore not renewable. In accordance with the provisions established by law, records of inactive licenses may be destroyed [N.J.S.A. 34:7-3]. An application to renew a license that expired more than 3 years ago is considered an original application.
5.Renewal Fee, Late – A late renewal (up to 3 months past expiration) is allowed, provided that the appropriate fee is paid ($120 for a 1-year renewal; $240 for a 3-year renewal). Renewals that are 4
months or more overdue are assessed a penalty. If your license expired at least 4 months ago, it is imperative that you call (609) 292-2921 to find out the penalty fee required to renew an expired license.
6.Renewal Fee, Lost – This agency assumes no liability and is not responsible for any fee that is not received on time or that is lost while in transit.
