Renew Your Illinois Interior Design License - Expires August 31st!

ID 1.jpeg

Registered Interior Designers in Illinois (RID): You must renew your active license before it expires on August 31, 2019. The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) is moving away from sending paper based renewal notifications and will only be sending electronic notifications.

Make sure your renewal notice email does not get lost in your inbox! Search for an email from with the subject line as “Interior Designer Renewal Notice”. This email contains your license number and pin number that you will need to renew your license.

To check if your license is active, click the link below, select INTERIOR DESIGN and enter your name.

All Interior Design licenses will expire on August 31, 2019 if not renewed! Once renewed, licenses are good for two years and always expire on odd years.

If you have any questions or concerns about the renewal process, contact the Department at 1 (800) 560-6420 or send a message here.
