Paying for Your New or Renewed License
Currently, credit card payments cannot be taken online. Cash or check is accepted, and MasterCard or Visa is accepted in our offices or over the phone. If paying by credit card, a surcharge will be applied. For example, as the amount of the fee depends on the amount of purchase, when charging a $200 renewal on a MasterCard, the fee will be $5.08. On Visa, the fee is $4.68. Credit card information taken over the phone will be shredded promptly after processing. If paying by check, please make check payable to St. Charles County Building.
- Your license is not active until payment is received and all required documents have been verified.
- Starting next year (November-December 2016), applications will be accepted online only.
- Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Please gather your required documents and submit them all at the same time.
