New Licensing Fees Coming in California

The California Alarm Association reported on March 20 that, as a result of legislation (SB 547, Chapter 429) signed into law in 2017, effective July 1, 2018, there will be new fee amounts for most license types regulated by the Alarm Company Act, Collateral Recovery Act, Locksmith Act, Private Security Services Act, and Proprietary Private Security Services Act.

Please note that SB 547 did not affect the fees in the Private Investigator Act.

Submitting Initial Applications for Licensure: The date the application and payment for initial licensure is submitted will determine whether the current or new fee will apply:

  • If the application is submitted by mail and postmarked before July 1, 2018, the current fee will apply.
  • If the application is submitted by mail and postmarked on or after July 1, 2018, the new fee will apply,
  • If the application is submitted by BreEZe or in-person before July 1, 2018, the current fee will apply.
  • If the application is submitted by BreEZe or in-person on or after July 1, 2018, the new fee will apply.

Submitting Renewal Applications: The expiration date for your current license, registration, certificate or permit determines whether your renewal payment is the current fee or the new fee amount. If the expiration date is before July 1, 2018, the current fee will apply. If the expiration date is after July 1, 2018, the new fee will apply even if you pay the renewal fee before July 1, 2018.
