To be eligible to renew your Level 2 or Level 3 license through the electronic system on line, be advised that you are required to be employed and are responsible for contacting your employing school district for recommendation.

If you are not currently employed in a New Mexico school and/or your license has been expired for more than one year, you must complete the NMPED Professional Licensure Unit Paper Application.

Only licenses that are expiring within six months of expiration will be eligible to renew through VL. Moreover, in no event shall the application for continuing licensure be submitted sooner than January 1 of the expiration year.
