To make changes to an existing license, complete a Revision Application, Document 180 and follow the instructions for the type of revision you are requesting. There is no fee for revisions. The following is a list of changes that require a Revision Application with additional information below:
To UPGRADE DOLLAR LIMITATION:
Submit the Revision Application along with the correct type of financial statement. The type of financial statement required to initially upgrade a license is not the same as what is required with renewals. See the type of financial statement that is required for each upgrade here at Financial Statement Requirements.
To add a qualifier or add a classification:
The qualifier must take and pass a technical exam (if required). The qualifier must also take and pass the SC Code of Laws Take Home exam (Document 170). Follow the instructions on the application to add a new qualifier.
If the qualifier (1) has already taken and passed the technical exam, (2) transferring from another license, or (3) a waiver applicant, complete the Revision Application, Document 180 and following the instructions on adding a qualifier or adding a classification.
