PRC License Renewal 2013


As professionals, it’s imperative for us to renew our PRC license once every 3 years. To help and guide you throughout the process and to save you from all the trouble and/or hassles, I want to share my own account. Since you are now looking for renewal, I would presume you already know where the PRC central office is. It’s located still in P. Paredes St. cor. Morayta St. Sampaloc, Manila. If you have renewed your license before and you are confident that you still remember the same process you went through previously, think again. A lot of changes could happen in 3 years and I don’t even remember the last time I was there. There was no distinction as to what process is to what profession. So I believe this process applies to all PRC licenses. The PRC License Renewal is very straightforward.



This is really not needed in the process itself but when you walk through the entrance, the guard will look for it. In case you have a lost ID, you might need to convince the guard that you have official business entering the PRC building. You may present an affidavit of loss if needed.

2. Picture

Your latest picture of course. 1 copy only. They’re pretty strict on this so be wary. It should be passport size, colored, with collar, with white background, with name tag in the format of surname, given name and middle initial. Your picture should be paste NOT stapled in the form that you will be filling up. There is a paste provided in the counter but you may bring your own if you want, together with your own black pen.

3. Renewal Form

A small sheet of paper that will be given to you where you will paste your picture.

4. Cash

There is a renewal fee which you will pay to the cashier.


1. Once you get pass the entrance, walk straight to the PRC main building and proceed to window 13. All windows are numbered so you will find it easily. Ask for a renewal form, fill it up, paste your picture and return it to the same window. You will then wait for your name to be called in window 17.

2. Sit and wait for your name to be called. They announce it through a microphone and speaker so you won’t miss it. It would take just a few minutes. Once you hear you name, go to window 17 and get your claim slip. Your claim slip will indicate the amount that you should pay, the date of the release of your license and the window number where you will claim it.

3. Proceed to cashier. After payment, you’re done for the day. Just go back on the designated date and don’t forget to bring also the official receipt of payment when claiming.


1. They usually process renewals even on lunch breaks except for first Fridays of the month when they conduct first Friday catholic mass instead. You can join the mass too since it’s just in the lobby where the processing of licenses take place.

2. The waiting period before you can claim your license is usually 1 to 2 weeks but there’s a fast ID  process that they are planning to implement. Ask about it. You can get your ID earlier for a higher renewal fee.

3. They have a number of cashiers in different floors. If the queue is long in the ground floor. Look for other options. The fee for a CPA is 450 PHP.

4. There are some professions wherein you need to present a certificate of good standing in order to claim you ID. No need for CPA’s.

5. Renewal centers are also present in selected SM malls but I strongly suggest that you go to the PRC central office.

There you have it. I hope all those who will renew their license would find this helpful. Now it’s time for you to try it.

      • robyn mepieza says

        Hi sir, i’m an ofw from ksa, ask ku lang po,can I still claim my prc license card(renewed) even after a 1year na ang nakalipas mula ng irenew?? Narenew na po kc ng ate ko yung ID ko,ang kasu po walang SPA para maclaim nya. .ang plan ku po sana,pag uwi ku nlng next year kuhanin personally. Ibibigay padin po ba nla yun o another application for renewal ult ako????


    Thank s for the concern. May I also ask about the OFWs who wants to renew their licenses.Please help! Thanks! Regards.

  3. Mark says

    Hi Rey. I was just wondering why you think it would be better to renew our licenses at the main branch? Wouldn’t it be more convenient to process the renewal at the satellite branches in SM malls? Was just curious if you had some problems/difficulties dealing with the satellite branches in SM. Hope you could enlighten me. Thanks!

  4. Mildred says

    Hi there. I passed the board last year lang & want to know if I need to have 60units of CPE before I could renew my license? Thank you.

  5. Anton says

        Hi PRC Admin,

        I am just wondering if i can still get my PRC Licence, I took LET August 26, 2001 in Baguio City,
        had paid all the requirements at PRC Baguio but my PRC licence never arrived. I phoned them many times but nothing happened. My CERTIFICATION NUMBER is 731507 issued on November 13, 2001

        I even asked assistance in the main office in 2003 but there was again no action.

        I already left Philippines from 2005 to 2013 and now a returning teacher in the Philippines can I still get my licence Sir? And what should I bring to get it please.

  7. Bench C says

    Thanks for this advice. May i ask when to go to the PRC office for the renewal of the license, is it before, on, or after the expiry date?

  8. Allan M. Caseres says

    Thanks Rey for this helpful info since i’ve been away from Philippines being an OFW. Luckily, i come across with your website where i think this is very helpful to us especially that we are not updated to the new renewal procedures.
    Rey, I have an expired license and i want to renew it now since i’m currently on vacation here in philippines. Would there be any additional documents or papers that i need to prepare? My PRC ID expired last Oct, 2011.

    Thanks Rey for any advice you can share. Or to those blogger who can share same experience i really appreciate.

    God Bless po sa ating lahat

    Good Day Sir,

    I ‘m hoping to renew my license tomorrow, however there to issues with my case. I haven’t gotten the PRC ID which was due for pick up last 2012 and I am assuming its expired already. So, I am panning to process it tomorrow. What could be the documents I need (I actually lost already my claim stub) for a new ID and renewal?

    Thank you Sir!

      • janet says

        hi rey,
        ask ko sna ano oras pwede pumunta sa PRC kapag releasing ng i.d ksi nag pa change name ako so need ko n kunin i.d n pina renew ko pero malayo ang destination ko from olongapo pa ako so ask ko sna kung may idea ka wat time ang issuance ng i.d?

        • says

          Hi Janet. I suggest go there in the morning as early as possible. Here’s what happened when I claimed mine. I expected it to be an easy process but it was not. I was very disappointed together with other professionals because we waited hours before we get our IDs. Apparently, they only print your ID the moment you show up there. So if there are too many people claiming on the same day, expect a long waiting line. I hope this process has been changed since. Thanks.

          • kathie lou says

            sir, ask ko lng if may idea ka kung ano ang office hours nila? from monday to friday lang ba? thanks!

  27. JC says

    Hi Sir, your website is very informative and helpful. Thanks for putting it up. =) Ask ko lang po, may idea po ba kayo if nafo-forfeit yung mga ID license na hindi nake-claim on time? I had my license renewed with change of name last April 2013. Sabi nila around 2-3 months’ time daw ang processing, kaya lang baka November pa ako makauwi dyan sa atin. Would you know po kung ano pwedeng mangyari? Thanks in advance!

  31. Elaine Acuna says

    Thanks sir!

    This is very helpful. I’m a CPA too and will be renewing my license for the 1st time this Oct.


  32. PinkPie says

    Pwede po ba magre-new sa SM Malls kahit 9 years nang expired yung license? Aside from P30/month may iba pa po bang penalty na babayaran? This is for ECE license. Please share your experience sa organization penalty. Thanks!

  33. leene says

    What exactly is the date filed? day when I filed my license? i can’t remember any more. Or it is th day of the renewal of my license? thanks a lot.

  34. kc says

    Hi! Thank you so much for this initiative of yours. You deserve a great THANK YOU!
    Just want to ask if:
    a.) the P30 monthly penalty for every succeeding month after expiry date is still acceptable, and
    b.) what are the necessary documents needed if my PRC ID was lost and sad to say, I failed to memorize my ID number. Also, I was not able to get my certificate in PRC Cebu since I already worked here in Manila. So, I don’t have any valid document with me as a proof that I passed the boards, except that of the certification of my board results. Can that be used or so long as I can secure an affidavit of loss, everything will be fine?
    Thank you so much and hoping to receive a reply from you before Aug 15. Thank you so much!

      • kc says

        Thank you so much, Sir Rey! Thumbs up to people like you who always have the eagerness to share what they know and somehow, enlighten people to always be hopeful and courageous in taking risks (notwithstanding the “what ifs”)! Again, thank you!

  35. anne says

    Hi Sir Rey, I’ll also renew my license this coming Nov’ 2013, would like to ask if you’re also aware in PICPA membership renewal. Thanks :)

  36. nelson says

    just renewed my prc id last friday. i go directly to prc head office @ about 9am. go to window Q, just at the left of entrance gate and ask for renewal form. The guy just gave me
    a small paper, not the usual one then filled up the form. i went to window 18 and give the form with pasted photo and was told to wait for window 23 to call my name. as my name was called, i paid P480. P450 + 30 for penalty. mine was already expire since march 2013. the lady in w-23 told me to wait for w-17 to call my name to claim my prc id. we received our prc id that day also in less than an hour. we are very luck. Congrats PRC.
    they said they were on dry-run on making 1-day processing and they were already on its 2nd week during that time.

  40. krad eirol says

    panu po kung saktong 2 years nang expired un prc license….magiging P15 din per month un penalty or P30 pa rin?

  41. says

    Kailangan pa ba ng membership certificate? Hindi na po ako nag attend ng mga activities ng NOPT, kailangan po ba talaga ng membership certificate pag mag renew ako,

  42. Steph says

    hello po.. im a registered nurse and its my first time to renew my license. makakapagrenew po ba ako if nawala ung expired license ko?


  43. mai says

    hello po, pwede po ba magrenew ng license sa SM mall together with changing of name due to marriage? or sa PRC Central office po talag dapat? salamat po

  44. don says

    PRC is not transparent with their late fees, just renewed mine today, expired na last May 2013 and I paid 450 + 30, meaning i’m 3mos late with P30 penalty only. So maybe it’s now down to P10/month? They need to clarify this to avoid confusion, para makapaghanda rin ang mga professionals na pupunta for renewal.

  45. says

    Hello po.. tanong ko lang po kung pwede irenew yung license kahit 2 to 3 months in advance?.. at kung may additional documents pa pong kailangan for electrical engineer?.. Thank you..

  46. Yna Dee says

    Hi my license will January next year po. May I ask pwede po ba ako mag renew na this month?? May additional fees po ba and requirements? thank you po..

  47. Jeric says

    Hi Rey, thanks sa info sa blog.. tanong ko lang rin if familiar kaw sa process ng lost PRC ID. maeexpire na ung PRC ID ko this coming december and ang balak ko is kumuha lang ng duplicate ID(hindi license renewal). Allowed pa ba ako kumuha ng replacement sa lost PRC ko since in 3months time eh maeexpired na siya? and ganu katagal processing nila para makuha ko ung replacement ng lost PRC ID? kelangan ko lang kasi by october or probably sa november ung ID, and ang reason bakit hindi ako sa license renewal is may required pang CPE sa engineering profession. Thank you!

  48. Romelyn Suarez says

    Hello Rey,
    Thanks for this info. It really helps.
    I would like to ask if they are really strict with picture with a collar.
    You see, I’m a muslim and I cant wear a dress with collar since I’m wearing a veil. If ever I will wear a dress with a collar, it will just be hidden under my veil.

  49. Dino says

    Hi Rey,

    Does the penalty of 30php/month has a maximum cap? My license expired last 2003, and i have been overseas since then. Does it mean i need to pay 30php for every month from 2003-2013? Also is it necessary to have the certificate of good standing in order to renew (my license is for architect)? As i left philippines after i got my license, i didnt join any organization (APO).

    • says

      Hi Dino. I don’t think there’s a cap but it becomes 15 PHP per month when it’s already expired for a number of years. About the certificate of good standing, it’s a requirement for your profession. Isn’t it automatic to be part of an APO when we become professionals? This is the case with accountants, not sure with your profession though.

      • Dino says

        Ok thanks. 15/month should be easier on the pocket. As far as i know 12 yrs ago it was not a requirement to join any APO. But now the problem is my PRC license is expired, so I cant join any APO even if i wanted to. im just hoping there is a way to get the renewal without the cert from APO.

  50. Gelyn says

    Hi Rey,

    Thanks for your effort, its most helpful…I just want to inquire…I am a CPA, but working abroad and my PRC ID expired since 1997. (now 16 years expired)..should I be required to get a certificate from PICPA before I be allowed to renew my ID? or can I renew even without the PICPA certification.. so for PRC charges it would be Php 450 plus Php 15 from No. 1997 up to now? .I just read from PICPA website that they are offering reinstatement program for PICPA members(my PICPA membership also expired) for a minimal fee 2K, if payment is made on or before 31st Dec.2013 and 3K on or before June 2014…do I get it right…thanks again and regards.

      Hi Gelyn. You’re right on the fees. On the PICPA certificate, no need. It’s not a requirement for us, only in other professions wherein they have to present an updated certificate from their APO’s.

  52. Maya says

    Hi Rey,

    I am a CPA and currently working in the government. I was asked to submit a Certificate of Good Standing from PRC as an appointment required document. Is there such thing?

  69. Zen says

    Hello Sir, Im planning to renew my ECE license this December, im an OFW, am I required of good standing certificate (GSC) from IECEP? Or should I just go directly to PRC main office and renew because I heard OFW is exempted of the GSC from IECEP. By the way, can I still get my PRC Certificate of Registration, because the last time I got my license, I lost the claim stub for the PRC Certificate of Registration, thus didn’t get it. Appreciate much your response. Thanks.

Im planning to let my nephew renew my license in behalf of me there in Manila via FAST ID system. Ang concern ko lang po, in FAST ID system kelangan po ba na personal na ako ang magfile ng renewal?

  76. Marie says

    Hi Sir, thanks for this info.
    I renewed my license last 2009 but I never claimed my ID (well due to busy worklife), I still have my claim stub with me. If I renew my license now, do you think they will still ask for my renewed ID or will my original ID 2006-2009 plus my 2009-2012 claim stub suffice for them to count my penalty years just from 2012? or will it still resume to 2009 expiration? Thanks a lot sir.

  83. MMVP says

    Dear Sir Reynaldo Mata Jr.,

    I passed CPA licensure when I am still married, and therefore, I registered with my married name. If I need to change my name and status due to annulment, will it cost me much or would it be better to retain my married name in my PRC license to avoid complications?

    Thank you very much for your guidance.

    Kind Regards,

    I renewed my CPA License yesterday at PRC Paredes, Manila. Surprisingly, I was able to get the ID card the same day. Mine was expired for almost 6 years. Paid a total of P1,380.00 (P1,260 renewal fee + P120 surcharge). I guess the “one stop card license card processing” is applicable for all profession. here is the step by step procedure for the license renewal:

    Things needed: a) 1 Passport size colored ID picture with name tag (in surname, given name and middle initial format) b) pen (any color)

    I brought my old License Card but found no need for it.

    Step 1 : Get a renewal slip. It is available at the Information Booth located right beside the entrance. Fill it up, attach the picture using a glue or any adhesive (stapled not allowed for the picture will be scanned) you may wish to bring your own adhesive but there is a free glue at the building main entrance.

    Step 2 : Proceed to Window 15 for the payment assessment. Look for a seat and wait for your name to be called (this may take awhile depending on the number of people renewing).

    Step 3 : Your name will be called at Window 17. You’ll be given a sort of order of payment with your details in it and your scanned picture.

    Step 4 : Proceed to Window 23 for the payment.

    Step 5 : Wait for your name to be called to receive your new license card at Window 17.

    It took me at least two 2 hours for the whole renewal process. Also, looking for a place to park for your car would be very difficult so you may opt just to use public transpo.

    Hope this helps.

  96. Keith says

    Hello sir Rey!

    Thanks for the information you shared. I need to ask on how to get a new PRC license because I just recently came here in Canada and I lost my wallet along with my license on it. And I really really need it for my RN application here. But It hasn’t expired yet, so, I am hoping you could give me some advise about this one.

    Many thanks and God bless!

  102. Jean says

    My husband and I failed to renew our PRC (CPA) ID since 1986. He lost his ID while mine is still under my maiden name. We also failed to get our board certificates. Computing the penalty, the amount is quite big so my questions are: (1) Does PRC accepts personal check as payment? (2) How do I go about change of marital status and renewal of license at the same time?

    It was only after I drove my daughter to PRC for her RCh license that I thought of going through the process of renewing our licenses and upon searching for process of renewal, I read your entry and got more interested. Thank you! Your information is a great help!

    God bless you.

  103. DeeRobles says

    How much is the charge for change of family name? Is there a PRC office in Iloilo. I am going there next month so I find it convenient to renew my license there. Can I get my renewed license the same day I applied? Or can they send it through LBC to my address in dumaguete? Thank for your reply to this, sir.
