PRC ID Renewal Center in SM North Edsa

Friday, April 19, 2013


Hey everyone! Just recently, I realized my PRC license expired last month giving me a gruesome image of long lines at the PRC main office on a hot summer day. Good thing license renewal can now be accomplished in chosen SM Malls and luckily Sm North Edsa is one of them. 



It's located along the bridgeway connecting The Block to SM's main building at the bills payment section. First counter you see on the left is where you should begin:

Get a PRC renewal form from counter 1.
♥ Submit the duly accomplished form together with your PRC license  and 1 passport size picture of yourself in a collared top with name plate and white background. 
♥ Have your picture taken as a back up.
♥ Pay the renewal and processing fees of Php 500.


TIPS:
If ever you came without a passport size picture, you may want to go to Tronix Imaging Center at the basement of SM Annex. A set of 6 passport size pictures costs Php 60. They can edit your image pretty good and can even make it look like you're wearing a collared blouse without additional fee. Nice huh? But please do wear a collared top when you go there because they still need to take your picture
at counter 1 for back-up. 


I think they coordinate with PRC online for info verification. In case of an expired license, the penalty will depend on how long it's been expired. In my case, it's been a little over a month which did not incur any late fees. It doesn't matter whether your license is expiring months earlier but the best time would be at least a month before your license expires because it also takes a month before you can pick up your renewed license. You also have the option of having it delivered to your doorstep for an additional fee.


Overall, I love the idea of having your license renewed in more convenient places other than the main office of PRC in Morayta. You can avoid the hassle of not having to go with the large volume of board exam applicants. This way, you won't have to endure the long lines just to renew your license and you don't have to miss work because they're open everyday during mall hours. What's really impressive is that it only took me 15 minutes to accomplish everything because all transactions are done in one counter. I really commend PRC and of course the SM management for making all these possible in an organized manner. Gone are the days when PRC license renewal equals to a headache.. heck, even a migraine. 


Other SM branches that offer PRC license renewal are listed on PRC's official website so do check that out. Thanks for reading and have a pleasant weekend!

  2. Hi there. Based on the website of PRC, SM North EDSA is not included in the list. Does this mean the list posted is incomplete? Would you know the complete list of SM malls then? Thanks a lot :)

    1. Yes they do deliver for a certain fee which I'm not sure how much but I guess it wouldn't be far from the usual courier fee. They're located at the customer's service on the 2nd floor along the bridgeway connecting The Block and main bldg. Just beside Etude House.

  6. Hi. Does it really take 1 month to claim the renewed PRC license? Because 1 blogger claimed it can be received after 1 week. (http://dindomojica003.blogspot.sg/2013/06/how-to-renew-your-prc-civil-engineer.html#axzz2YaJ1Tc00)

    1. Hello Glenn, I can't tell with other SM branches if they can process the renewal in 1 week but SM North business center tells their customers to follow up after 1 month maybe because of the bulk of applications they get.

    3. I guess it varies depending on the bulk of applicants. :)

    2. If your license has been expired for that long they will charge you a certain amount on top of the registration and processing fee of Php 500 but sorry to say I don't know how much more. You can contact PRC directly and inquire, their hotline is (632) 3100026.

    1. I'm not so sure with other SM branches but I processed mine in SM North Edsa. I noticed back then that they tell their clients to come back at least a month after. Just in case you need your license renewed right away, I think it's best to visit PRC. Otherwise, you may renew in SM business centers and have the reciept as proof that you've already renewed your license and it's still being processed.
