If you're due to renew your PRC license soon (which means that your birthday is coming up - Happy Birthday!, and also my birthday), make sure that you won't be charged an unnecessary late renewal/penalty fee. As registered/licensed professionals, it is our duty and obligation to renew our PRC license once every three (3) years in order for us to continue to practice our own profession. To help and guide you on this process, I just want to share with you my own experience in renewing my PRC license (renewed last May 15, 2013). There is only a change, and that is the availability of the print-out of your Application for Professional Identification Card together with ID Claim Slip (which on 2010, I had need to fill it up legibly).


1. Duly accomplished renewal form (PRC ID renewal)
2. Passport-size picture: close up, colored, white background with complete name tag
3. Photocopy of your recent PRC ID card (front and back)
4. In case of LOST PRC ID card which is still current, the applicant shall submit notarized Affidavit of Loss

Affidavit of Loss format:

5. In case of DESTROYED PRC ID card, the applicant shall surrender the destroyed card


1. Go to “PRC CUSTOMER SERVICE CENTER” – Operated by the PRC Cooperative and PRC Savings and Loan Association, Inc. (near the PRC entrance gate/outside of PRC Annex Building) at Window Q-S (Public Assistance Center) and a PRC personnel will give you PRC License ID Renewal form.

2. Attach a passport-sized picture with name tag and white background to the said form.

(Note: Bring your own black ballpen and paste) If you forgot to bring your passport-size pictures, there is a kiosk near the Public Assistance Center where you can have your picture taken there that cost around P80 for 4 copies of passport size pictures. Just fill up the form and paste your passport size picture.

3. Present duly accomplished PRC ID renewal form together with the photocopy of your old PRC license (front and back ID) to Window 13 Assessment Section (PRC Main Building Ground Floor Left Wing) and wait for your turn until your name is called at Window 17.

4. When your name is called at Window 17, the PRC personnel had just finished update your profile (via their database) and she will give you the printed form of Application for Professional Identification Card together with ID Claim Slip
