When do You need to Renew Your PSO Registration?

You need to renew your proprietary private security officer registration in California every 2 years.

You should download, complete and submit the application along with the renewal fee between 3 and 6 months before your current registration expires. The expiration date of your license can be found on your PSO Registration Card.

PSO Renewal Fees

  • The renewal fee is $35, if your PSO license has not expired.
  • The PSO renewal fee is $60, if your PSO license has not been expired for more than 60 days.
  • You CANNOT renew your PSO registration if your PSO license has been expired for more than 60 days. If your registration has expired more than 60 days, you must start the PSO registration process over, including getting fingerprinted and background checked again.
