Help Center / Can I give up (voluntarily relinquish) my license?

Yes, in most cases. If there is no pending disciplinary action against the license, it can be voluntarily relinquished at any time. See our “How do I…?” for additional information.

Once a license has been voluntarily relinquished, it cannot be reinstated. A license that has been voluntarily relinquished does not authorize the former licensee to practice.
