All licenses expire annually on such date as the commissioner may designate, and may be renewed with the board by payment of the renewal fee as set under section 4863-A. [2007, c. 402, Pt. R, §7 (AMD).]

A person who submits an application for renewal more than 90 days after the license renewal date is subject to all requirements governing new applicants under this chapter, except that the board may, giving due consideration to the protection of the public, waive examination if that renewal application is received, together with the late fee, renewal fee and additional late fee as set under section 4863-A, within 2 years from the date of the expiration. [2007, c. 402, Pt. R, §7 (AMD).]
