Each check or money order should be made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia. All fees required by the board are nonrefundable.

*Includes renewal fee listed in 18VAC50-22-140.

The date on which the reinstatement fee is received by the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation or its agent shall determine whether the licensee is eligible for reinstatement or must apply for a new license and meet the entry requirements in place at the time of that application. In order to ensure that licensees are qualified to practice as contractors, no reinstatement will be permitted once two years from the expiration date of the license have passed.

For reinstatement fees received on or before August 31, 2025, the fees shall be $360 for Class C reinstatement, $410 for Class B reinstatement, $450 for Class A reinstatement, and $360 for a Residential Building Energy Analyst Firm. These fees include the renewal fee listed in 18VAC50-22-140.
