License Renewals

Welcome to the LA CSR BOARD’S Online License Renewal Site!

We are currently renewing CCR and CDR Professional Licenses for the 2021 calendar year.


It is the policy of the Board that knowing the expiration date of a license is the responsibility of the
registrant, regardless of whether or not the registrant receives a renewal notification. CCR and CDR
Licenses are calendar year licenses. All licenses will expire if not renewed on December 31st annually.

Any licensee who fails to complete the renewal process timely or who requests any status other than
“Active” will be prohibited from representing himself/herself to the public in Louisiana as a Certified
Court Reporter or Certified Digital Reporter.

**If your license/certificate is Expired or under any status other than “Active”, you must contact the LA CSR
BOARD OFFICE. For name changes you must complete the Reporters Status Report and contact the Board Office.

On every even numbered year when all mandatory continuing education credits are due; all credits must be
completed and turned into the Board Office on or before December 31st. All continuing education credits are due
within 30 days after the reporter has received proof of attendance.
