(a) Application for renewal of a license must be received by the licensing authority, through the department of labor and training, division of professional regulation, on a form provided by the licensing authority no less than thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date of the license, subject to the right of the licensing authority to permit late filing upon good cause shown.
(b) The licensing authority may refuse to renew a license for any of the grounds stated in this chapter and it shall promptly notify the licensee of its intent to refuse to renew the license. The licensee may, within fifteen (15) days after receipt of the notice of intent to refuse to renew a license, request a hearing on that refusal in the manner prescribed in this chapter. A licensee shall be permitted to continue to engage in the business permitted by the license while its renewal application is pending.
(c) Every certificate issued by the division of professional regulation to license holders born in odd years shall expire on the birthday of the individual qualifying for the license in odd years and all licenses issued by the division of professional regulation to license holders born in even years shall expire on the birthday of the individual qualifying for the license in even years. An individual may renew his or her license by payment of the required biennial renewal fee. An individual who fails to renew his or her license prior to the date may not renew his or her license after this except upon payment of the biennial renewal fee and the additional fee required by this chapter.
