PERC LICENSEES: The deadline to renew your license without a late fee has been extended to July 31, 2024. Contact our call center at 1-800-560-6420 if you have questions. You can also view our helpful guides for retrieving your user name and for help resetting your password.

Effective July 24, 2024, we request individuals seeking updates on licensure applications make virtual appointments on Wednesdays instead of visiting the Department’s Springfield office. Learn more on the IDFPR's Contact Us webpage.

Requirements for Reactivating Your License

This webpage is only available to the following professions: Barber, Cosmetologist, Nail Technician, Salon Shop, Pharmacy Technician, Physician, Registered Nurse, and Licensed Practical Nurse looking to reactivate their licenses.

If your license needs to be reinstated or restored, please use the chart below to identify what fee amount is owed and which application to use.

The first step is to identify the date your license expired, which will inform you of the fee that is due to reinstate or restore the license. For individuals who need to check their license expiration date, please use our license look up tool here.

NOTE: If your license is in "inactive" status, please refer back to the Reactivate Your License web page here.

As you follow the chart across, you will notice the fee amount is based on when you submit the payment (before or after the renewal period).

The last column with links will inform you what application you need to submit.

The last step will be to print the application and instructions, fill them out, and mail them and the fee to the Department.
