Emergency License Extensions Due To COVID-19

On November 23, 2020, the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation passed an emergency rule related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this rule, all TDLR licensees with a renewable license that expired between August 1 and November 30, 2020 are considered to hold an emergency license valid for up to 120 days after their license expiration date.

This extra time is to allow those who are waiting for their license to be renewed by TDLR to continue working with a valid license as TDLR navigates workflow challenges brought on by COVID-19.

Current license expiration dates will not change, and any late fees accrued will not be waived. All licensees should still renew their licenses in accordance with their regular expiration dates.

TDLR will not issue printed emergency licenses, and licensees are not required to post or display proof of an emergency license. An online database of all emergency licenses is available below.

Anyone needing verification or authorization for an emergency license should be directed to this page.
