A. Within a reasonable time after the receipt of an original application or renewal application, together with the fee required by section 32-1685, the board shall investigate the qualifications of the applicant. The board shall approve the application if the applicant meets the qualifications of this chapter and board rules and shall allow the applicant for initial licensure to sit for the practical examination. The board shall issue a license if the applicant successfully completes this examination. If the board disapproves an original or renewal application it shall notify the applicant pursuant to section 32-1694, subsection A.
B. Except as provided in section 32-4301, on or before December 31 of each year a licensee shall submit a renewal application on a form prescribed by the board. The licensee shall submit the renewal fee prescribed by section 32-1685 with the application.
C. A licensee who submits a renewal application and renewal fee after December 31 but before the following January 31 shall pay a late fee prescribed by section 32-1685 in addition to the renewal fee. The board may allow a licensee additional time to submit a renewal application if the licensee demonstrates to the board's satisfaction good cause to do so.
D. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a license expires if it is not renewed before January 31 following the December 31 expiration date. A person who does not submit a renewal application, a renewal fee and a late fee before that date may submit an application for reinstatement on a form prescribed by the board within one year after the license expiration date. The applicant for reinstatement shall submit the renewal fee and a late fee prescribed by section 32-1685 with the application. The applicant shall take the state board practical examination. The applicant shall also take the national examinations if the applicant did not successfully complete those examinations before the applicant obtained the original license.
