A. A contractor may request the registrar, on forms prescribed by the registrar, to inactivate the contractor's current license for a period not to exceed five years at one time by giving written notice to the registrar. The registrar, in the absence of any disciplinary proceeding or disciplinary suspension and on payment of reasonable fees determined by the registrar, may issue to the contractor an inactive license certificate. The inactive license certificate may consist of an endorsement on the contractor's license stating that the license is inactive. The registrar may not refund any of the license renewal fee a contractor paid before requesting inactive status.
B. A contractor's license that is not suspended or revoked and that is inactive may be reactivated as an active license on payment of the current renewal fee and thirty days' written notice to the registrar. An examination may not be required to reactivate an inactive license. If the license is not reactivated within five years, a new application for licensing must be made unless the contractor requests, on forms prescribed by the registrar, to inactivate the license for an additional period not to exceed five years. A contractor may not inactivate the license more than twice.
C. The holder of an inactive license may not practice as a contractor until the license is reactivated as an active license.
D. The inactive status of a contractor's license does not prevent the registrar from taking any disciplinary action against a licensed contractor for any of the grounds stated in this chapter.
