NOTE: Renewal requirements must be completed prior to renewing your license. If your license expires, you cannot work until the license is reinstated. Your application is subject to audit for compliance with all renewal requirements.

  1. Before you can renew your appraisal license an individual must complete a RAP Back Fingerprinting Requirement. Please read the following information and instructions:.
  2. If you reside outside of Utah and cannot visit a Utah fingerprinting facility, you will need to have your fingerprints taken on two Blue FD-258 cards and mail them in to the Division. Please submit physical cards to the Division as early in your renewal window as possible due to a longer processing time being required (up to 30 days).

    Education must be taken by the 15th of the month of renewal in order to ensure an on-time license renewal.
