Foodhandler Permits expire three years from the date you attend class and pass a test. There are two ways to obtain a renewal:
- Attend another Food Safety Class and pass the examination.
- Pass a comprehensive Waiver Test. If you fail the Waiver Test, you must attend another food handler class in order to receive a new permit.
