How to Renew Your Florida Barber License: Step by Step
- Purchase and complete Barber Board Approved 2-Hour HIV/AIDS Course
- Log in to DBPR website, pay fee, and renew license
- Print your license (Don’t forget to laminate it)
Step 1: Complete a Barber Board-Approved 2-Hour HIV Course
There is only one course required to renew a Barber license or Restricted Barber license. A 2-Hour HIV/AIDS Course that is approved by the Florida Barbers’ Board must be completed during each renewal period. The next renewal deadline is July 31st, 2022. If you missed the 2020 renewal, you can also use this course to complete the renewal requirement.
Our online Barbers’ Board Approved 2-Hour HIV/AIDS course is available immediately after purchase and can be completed at your own pace. So you can finish this requirement and do something else on your day off.
There are no continuing education requirements to renew a Barbershop license or a Barber Assistant license. However, the renewal fee must be paid by the renewal deadline, July 31st/Even for Barber assistants and November 30th/Even for barbershops.
After you complete the 2-hour HIV course and exam, we will report your continuing education hours to the DBPR within 24 hours if a Florida Barber license number is provided. If you do not see your hours posted on the DBPR website after 48 hours, read this troubleshooting guide.
Step 2: Log in to the DBPR website, pay fee, and renew license
To renew your Barber Board license, you will need to log in to your account on the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) website: www.myfloridalicense.com.
Click on “Apply or Manage My License“.
Select “Barbers” in the dropdown menu and then log in to complete the renewal process.
These fees are new as of 5/1/2020:
- Barber – $75
- Restricted Barber – $75
- Barbershop – $110
- Barber Assistant – $5
Step 3: Print Your Barber License
The DBPR, or Barber Board, no longer prints and mails initial, renewed, or duplicate licenses. You need to print your renewed license.
After you print your license, do not forget to laminate it with a photo.
Rule 61G3-19.009, Florida Administrative Code, requires all barbers to permanently laminate their license, including a 2” X 2” photograph taken within the previous two years, for posting at their work station. You may refer to the rule text for complete details for license lamination. Placing a license in a glass picture frame does not meet the lamination requirement.

How Do I Renew a Null and Void or Expired Barber License?
If you let your license expire, or become “null and void”, you must demonstrate that you failed to renew the license due to an illness or economic hardship. The application can be found here (BAR6).
With the application you will need to submit:
- Fee: $105
- Certificate of completion from a board-approved Initial HIV/AIDS course (This course can be used to complete this requirement.)
- An explanation of illness or economic hardship that prevented renewal
Do you offer a 2-hour HIV course in Spanish, or other languages?
This 2-hour HIV course is in English. However, you can easily use browser or webpage translation if you want to take the course in Spanish (Espanol), or any other language.
When do I renew my barbershop license?
Barbershop licenses have a renewal deadline of November 30th of even years. Unfortunately, a barbershop license cannot be renewed at the same time as a barber license. The renewal fee for a barbershop license is $110.
Can I take this course if I am a barber in another state and moving to Florida?
Yes! This course is also approved for an initial barber license and restricted barber applicants. We cannot report this course for applicants. However, you simply need to print off your course certificate after you pass the exam and upload it with your barber license application.
Where can I learn more about transferring a barber license to Florida?
I also need to apply for a cosmetology board license. Can I take this course for that application?
Unfortunately, no. The barber and cosmetology professions have different boards and separately approve providers and courses. If you hold both cosmetology license and barber licenses, you will need to complete an approved HIV/AIDS course for each board.
To obtain a Florida cosmetology board license, you need a 4-hour HIV course approved by the cosmetology board. We offer that course on this website: 4-hour HIV/AIDS course for cosmetology licenses.
