Step 1: Licensees can pay their renewal fees with our secure online payment portal at https://paydirect.link2gov.com/DOB-LicenseRenewal. After your online payment is processed, you will receive a confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org; the subject will be Department of Buildings Payment Confirmation.
Step 2: To complete the renewal process, you must mail in your application and supporting documents to:
Licensing & Exams Unit
NYC Department of Buildings

New York, NY 10007
Supporting Documents include:
Original, Typewritten LIC2 License Application;
Completed, Typewritten LIC34 Licensing Supplemental Affidavit (if applicable);
Completed Child Support Certification form;
One (1) 2X2 Current Passport Size Photograph;
Updated Insurance Certificates (General Liability, Workers’ Compensation & Disability);
Business documents if there are any changes to the company associated with your license;

Note: If you received an “Intent not to Renew” letter, you must submit the required documentation stated in the letter PRIOR to renewal, and you must be cleared to renew before coming to the Licensing & Exams Unit to begin the renewal process.
To avoid a $50 late fee, renewal applications must be submitted 30-60 days before the expiration date indicated on the license card.
