Need to Renew My Serve Safe Food Handlers License

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

          Hi,

 

  My name is Victor. My Serve Safe Food Handlers Card has expired. I know I can take the test online to renew. Do I need to take the course again or can I go straight to the test? If anyone knows please let me know. Thanks.

Depends on state most require course again, as things change after 5 years.

I think it depends on your state. As of June this year in CA, every person working in a restaurant needs to have their food safety card, which means taking an online test.  There is also an option to get your managerial food safety card but that required a 6 hour class and test but costs extra.  As far as the online test, in my experience, you can either take the class online and then take the test, or if your confident in your knowledge you can skip to the test.  I guess the bottom line is to look into the regulations for your city and state.
