The state government also charges a licensing fee, most states will send out a renewal notice a month or two before you have to pay it. It is critical that the licensing agency knows your address. If you have moved since your license was issued you need to call that agency to make sure they have your current address.
Most agencies have a website and you are able to renew online.
