Licensing & Renewal


What are the requirements for license renewal?

All Kentucky chiropractors are required to renew their licenses annually on or before the first day of March. The annual renewal fee for active licensees is $250 and $75 for inactive licensees. Resident, active licensees are also required to  complete a minimum of 12 hours of Board approved continuing education over at least two days, annually. Of these twelve hours, six hours must be obtained in state.  Visit the Approved Courses (25K) section for a list of all Board approved CE courses listed in chronological order.  You may also visit KY Approved Courses (43K) to see which courses are taking place in Kentucky.
