Licenses issued by the Board expire annually on December 31.

NOTE: All 2023 renewals are now considered late **unless postmarked 12/31/22 or earlier.** An additional $50 late fee will be applied to each renewal completed after 1/1/2023.

Individual and Corporate License Renewal

The easiest and fastest way to renew is electronically through your NCICLB account. Each license, individual or corporate, has it’s own unique login credentials. Your username is your license number, as it appears on your license card. For corporate accounts, the “C-” will always precede the corporate license number. For example:
Individual username: ###           Corporate username: C-###

If you do not remember your password, you can reset it by clicking on “Forgot Password.” A new temporary password will be sent to the email address on file with the Board.

In order to be eligible to renew for the upcoming licensing year, individual licensees are required to complete and report ten (10) hours of Board approved Continuing Education; six (6) hours of irrigation and four (4) hours of business. Proof of attendance is required to be submitted once a licensee has been selected for audit, but you are encouraged to upload proofs into your online account in order to keep track of yearly courses. After the renewal period has ended, about 10% of licenses will be chosen to be audited. 

After CE requirements have been met, you will be prompted to renew. Complete the surety bond and Public Notice Statement steps before choosing your payment method. You may pay by check or credit card (MasterCard or Visa). If paying by credit card, you will be required to provide the address associated with the credit card bill. Make checks payable to NCICLB and mail to P.O. Box 41421 Raleigh, NC 27629. Your renewal is not complete until payment is received by the Board.

IMPORTANT: If you have a corporate account, be sure to log out upon completion of your individual renewal. You will then be able to log in to your corporate account and complete the renewal process for the corporate license. Corporate licenses may be renewed only after the qualifying individual’s renewal has been completed.


Paper Renewal
For those unable to renew electronically, paper forms are available below. Proof of attendance forms are required with all individual renewals. All renewals sent by US Mail must be postmarked by December 31 in order to avoid paying a late fee. If paying by credit card, forms may be emailed or faxed to the Board office.

License renewal requirements can be found under North Carolina General S tatute § 89G-9.

2023 Individual License Renewal Form – Read and complete the attached Public Notice Statement
CE Reporting Form  – Must be completed and submitted with individual renewal
2023 Corporate License Renewal Form


If you have not renewed your irrigation license(s) for 2023, you have until December 31, 2023 to renew. Follow these steps:

  • Print the 2023 individual renewal form and 2023 corporate renewal form if applicable.  You may complete the forms manually or you may type into the form while on the website and then print the form for mailing.
  • At least 6 irrigation hours and 4 business hours of continuing education must be reported before you will be eligible to renew your license. Use the CE reporting form to note courses, and include all proofs of attendance with your renewal form. Rollover credits are not allowed.
    • If continuing education was not earned between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022, licensees have 60 additional days to complete the required education before the license becomes ineligible for renewal. When this 60 additional day period is used to gain CE credit, an additional $250 reinstatement fee will be required upon renewal.
    • If CE is not earned by March 1, 2023, the license will be revoked, and the individual must re-apply for licensure by exam. Don’t let this happen to you! Complete your CE and reinstate as soon as possible!
  • Payment for renewal may be made by check or credit card, Visa and MasterCard only.  All fees may be combined on one check and should be made out to NCICLB. If paying by credit card, you may submit your renewal via mail, email, or fax to the Board Administrator.
  • Payment must include the $100 renewal fee, per license, and $50.00 late fee, per license.
  • The individual renewal form must be stamped in the bottom right corner with your self-inking or embossing seal. If using an embossing seal, be sure that the imprint is clear enough to read. All licensees are required to have an individual seal per General Statute §89 G, and must have purchased a seal through the Board to become licensed.  If you need to order a replacement seal, include an additional $50.oo seal reorder fee with your renewal. Please indicate cat the bottom right of your renewal form which kind of seal you would like to order, self-inking or embossing. The Board will order a new seal for you. If you do not indicate which seal you would like, the Board will order a self-inking stamp.

Wallet size renewal license cards will be mailed within 30 days of receipt of renewal. Also enclosed will be a vehicle decal and order form so that you may buy additional decals for each work vehicle. It is suggested by the Board that all work vehicles have a decal indicating there is a licensed irrigation contractor on site, or are being supervised by a licensed irrigation contractor.
