Section 1. (1) A license shall be renewed every two (2) years from date of issue or from date of last renewal. To apply for renewal, a licensee shall:
(a) Submit a completed Renewal Form B130-7 to the board; and
(b) Pay to the board the appropriate renewal fee established in 201 KAR 6:060 for the renewal of his license.
(2) A sixty (60) day grace period shall be allowed after the renewal date, during which time a licensee may continue to practice and may renew his license upon payment of the late renewal fee established in 201 KAR 6:060.
(a) A license not renewed by the end of the sixty (60) day grace period shall terminate based on the failure of the licensee to renew in a timely manner.
(b) Upon termination, the licensee shall not practice in the Commonwealth.
(3) A license shall be deemed inactive if:
(a) A licensee submits to the board a written request seeking inactive status;
(b) A licensee pays to the board the inactive licensee fee established in 201 KAR 6:060 for an inactive license;
(c) The grace period established in subsection (2) of this section has not expired; and
(d) The license is in good standing when the inactive status request is received.
