Time to Renew Your Appraisal License Online


It's that time again to renew your license and the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation has implemented a new online license renewal process. It looks the same as the last online renewal to me.  You all should have received an email from IDFPR in the past week with you renewal PIN #.  If you did not receive the PIN, I believe you can still renew with the last 4 numbers of your SS#.  By moving away from the paper-based license renewal notification,the state will save valuable State resources, while providing better service to the public.

To renew, visit the IDFPR website ( and follow the instructions listed.

Tips For Easy Use Include:

Print the instructions contained on the Departments Renewal Page for reference as you complete the renewal process.

Use your internet browser back key to return to a previous page.

No changes will be applied to your record unless your renewal has been submitted.

VISA, MasterCard and Discover are accepted (Please note that no credit card information is retained by IDFPR). A convenience fee will be added to the cost of your license renewal for vendor processing costs.
All fees are non-refundable.

If you have any questions or concerns about the renewal process, please feel free to contact the Department, toll free, at 1-800-560-6420 or send a question to
