    How long is the Restricted Substitute License valid?

    It will be valid for the time specified on the license. Typically, it is valid for the first school year you work. The first license is for one year and subsequent licenses for three years if you maintain the same district sponsor and renew your license before it expires. Instructions will accompany the license once it is issued and will explain exactly what you must complete to qualify for renewal of the license.

    How long is the process to become a Teacher Substitute?

    From start to finish, it could take approximately 2 to 4 months for TSPC to issue your license. However, you do not need to have your license issued to begin working as a sub if you have completed all the required items and you are just waiting for TSPC to issue the license.
