Just got my renewal notice from the State of Texas department of public safety and those guys are sure on the ball. Their letter had all the info I needed on a single page to explain what I needed. I can get a renewal application online and pay fee on line with a credit card. ( being an old guy I get a 50% discount on my fee. ) A "CHL-100" (that is proof of continuing education course completion) is required for the 1st and 2nd time consecutive renewals. After the 2nd renewal the CHL-100 is only required after 10 years starting with the 3rd renewal. However a renewal application is required each time you renew your CHL. Cool. I am now looking for a class close by where i live to start the process.
