37-51-310. Renewal. (1) License fees are due and payable for the ensuing licensure period at a time prescribed by department rule. Failure to remit renewal fees before the expiration date of the licensure period automatically cancels the license, but otherwise the license remains in effect continuously from the date of issuance unless suspended or revoked by the board for just cause.
(2) A licensee who allows the license to lapse by failing to remit the fees before the expiration date may have the license reinstated by the board by:
(a) within 45 days after the expiration date, providing a satisfactory explanation to the board for the licensee's failure to renew the license; and
(b) paying the current renewal fee prescribed by the board.
(3) The board may also charge a late fee equal to twice the current renewal fee, but no less than $100, to a licensee who does not renew the license as required by subsection (1).
