Tips on Renewing Your Professional License at PRC

If you are an engineer, a doctor, a nurse or a professional in the Philippines; then I am sure that you visited the office of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) to to renew your registration. Renewing your professional license can be an inconvenience, especially if you have to file a leave of absence just to renew. Going to the PRC can be less of a bother if you know what to expect when you are renewing  your professional license.

For those who are renewing their professional license, please read the regular procedures for professional license renewal. If you in the rush of renewing your license, please read the procedures in applying for Express ID. Before going to the PRC, decide which procedure you want to use because each procedures caters for different needs of professionals.

If you are one of those who are renewing their license, then the following tips will be helpful to you:


Tip # 1: Apply for PRC License Renewal at the Malls

PRC offices are usually filled with applicants for new PRC License and those who are renewing their license. Also, these offices are only open during weekdays so you are forced to take a "leave of absence" from work just to renew your license. The good news is that you can renew your professional license at the PRC Renewal Centers located at selected SM Malls. These centers are open 7 days a week (including Saturday and Sunday) during mall hours. Read more about the PRC Renewal Centers at malls on my blog post.

Tip # 2: Don't go to PRC during registration of nurses

The nursing profession is one of the professions that has the most number of professionals in the Philippines. I suggest that you avoid going to the PRC during the board exam registration of nurses because PRC office is usually jam packed during those times. I usually see the queue of nurse registrants reach the sidewalks of Espana Boulevard. The large number of people will make it hard for you to move around the PRC office.

Tip # 3: Bring the All the Requirements

The requirement for renewing your professional license are:

1. Application form (PRC Reg Form 003) that can be obtained from the Information Window near the entrance get in PRC central office. The form can also be downloaded from the PRC website (PDF).

2. Two pieces of passport size picture (3.5 cm by 4.5 cm). The picture should be a close-up of your face and  colored. The background should be plain white. A complete name tag should be placed at the bottom part of the picture.

3. Photocopy of your recent professional license ID. In case of lost ID, you must provide PRC with an affidavit of loss. If the ID is destroyed, then you must surrender the destroyed ID to the PRC.

Tip # 4: Obtain “Certificate of Good Standing” from your profession's organization

When I first went to the PRC, the clerk don't want to accept my application and told me to go to my accredited organization of my profession to obtain a certificate of good standing. I suggest that you ask your professional organization if you need this certificate before going to the PRC.

Tip # 5: Bring your own photo

There are photo booths located inside the PRC central office. I don't recommend these photo booths because their picture, which they take using a webcam, is crappy. Four pieces of passport size picture, with “free” ID card holder, cost about 80 pesos. Please take note that you only need one photo when you are renewing your license.

What I did is that I made my own passport size photo using Photoshop. I followed the photo requirement of PRC and typed a name tag at the bottom. The format of the name tag is: [your surname], [your given name] [your middle name]. You can print your picture at photo printing shops for as low as 30 pesos.

You don't need to bring your own photo if you are renewing your professional license through the Express ID. PRC's Megadata Office will take the picture, which will be used for your ID.

Tip # 6: Bring enough money

My professional license just expired, so I paid 450 pesos. Expect to pay more than 450 pesos if your license is expired for more than a year because PRC gives penalty to professionals who defer the renewal of their license. There is an additional fee for those who are renewing through Express ID.

Tip # 7: Avoid dealing with fixers

I did not encounter any fixers when I renewed my professional license. The transaction in the PRC is fast, which made fixers irrelevant. However, be conscious of possibility that there are some a people who may trick you when you are t the PRC. I suggest that you only transact with PRC employees.

Renewing your PRC license is an inconvenience but not uneasy. Following the tips that I posted here will make your license renewal faster and easier.

  1. Hello. Thank you for this very helpful blog.
    I am to renew my brother's license, soon, and I just would like to verify the picture with complete name tag--I thought the licensee must be holding the name tag personally--and not digitally enhanced. But since the article indicated you did resolved to this, then it follows that PRC is not so strict about it?
    Thank you very much. Please reply on my email soon, it is saigone_turro@yahoo.com.

  2. Hello Saigone.

    What the PRC actually needs is a passport sized photo with the name of the licensee at the bottom of the photo. So, it is OK if the name of the licensee is just placed on the photo using any-photo editing software.

    The photo-booths inside the PRC also do the same.

  3. Hi!
    Very helpful tips!
    I'm applying not to renew my license, but for my first-time application for the LET.
    I tried looking for sample photos of the passport size picture with the complete nametag at the bottom, but unfortunately was not able to find one.
    I am glad that you provided a description of the photo. I am familiar with Photoshop and can edit my own picture.
    Is it possible to request for a sample picture (either in this thread or via my e-mail)? (I'm nervous about the format). I'm sure a lot of others are curious as to how this custom passport photos look like.
    Thank you! :)

  36. Is there any way that I can find out what my license number is? I lost my PRC ID (my wallet was stolen), and was trying to accomplish the requirements needed in order to have it replaced. I had acquired an Affidavit of Loss, and was about to fill out the PRC form (Form 003) when I found out that the license number is needed. I do not have a photocopy nor photo of my license (big mistake on my part), and the Verification Service on the PRC website can only tell you if the person is licensed or not, and not the license number.

    A reply would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time. :)

  37. Hello Kristina

    What you can do is to call the PRC to get your PRC license number. Or, much better is that you go to PRC office to get that number

    The PRC might be district and will not provide information via telephone.

    Bring Government IDs when you go to PRC. They will require a valid identification to ensure that you are the person who own the license number and not someone who is fishing for info.

Then i read somewhere that from March 4 this year it had been approved ??? which is which?

    all my papers were already authenticated way back in '96 but due to the fact that i neglected to renew my license, i did pay my due penalty... i'm just sad to know this specially when i'm living and working more than 12 years outside Phil. and needed my verification form for my new job :(

    Masyadong matagal yung 3 months. Sa PRC - Manila office ay mga one week lang ay nakuha ko na yung PRC ID ko. Kapag Fast ID naman ay within 24 hours makuha mo na yung ID.

    There are professions that have stricter process in renewing the PRC License. PRC asks for certificate of good standing for such professions.

  121. Renewing the PRC license should be easy at all times regardless if it happens during the registration of nurses or whichever profession. Last time I went there in Dec 2012 it was horrible. I think they can speed up the process by removing some of the steps. The queue was just horrible and if they can tolerate giving that kind of service I think they are just as incompetent as any typical government office who has the mindset that "you people need something from us so shut up and queue for one day 'cause we don't care!"

    The requirements at PRC branches in SM Malls are the same in the regular PRC offices. I think that they only require photocopy of the old IDs.
