(a) Each license issued under this article shall be in effect, unless suspended, modified, or revoked pursuant to Chapter 31.05 ASCA or this article, until 31 December of the year issued. At that date all licenses lapse automatically unless renewal application has been made and fee tendered as prescribed in this article.
(b) Should a licensee allow a license to lapse by failure to reapply or should a licensee fail to provide the necessary information on such application form or information requested by the administrator, or fail to tender the required fee, such license may be renewed on or before 30 June of the following year without the licensee being required to retake the examinations provided for in this chapter for new applications, provided all other requirements of the law and rules are complied with. Failure to renew on or before 30 June of the following year and to pay the appropriate renewal fee shall subject the applicant to all procedures set out in this chapter for new applicants.History: Contractors Lic.
