    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2020)
    Sec. 16. Licenses; renewal; restoration; architects in military service. The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. The holder of a license may renew such license during the month preceding the expiration date thereof by paying the required fee. An architect who has permitted his license to expire or who has had his license on inactive status may have his license restored by making application to the Department and filing proof acceptable to the Department of his fitness to have his license restored, including sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, and by paying the required restoration fee.
    If the person has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Department, the Board shall determine, by an evaluation program established by rule, that person's fitness to resume active status and may require that person to successfully complete an examination.
    Any person whose license has been expired for more than 3 years may have his license restored by making application to the Department and filing proof acceptable to the Department of his fitness to have his license restored, including sworn evidence certifying to active practice in another jurisdiction, and by paying the required restoration fee.
    However, any person whose license has expired while he has been engaged (1) in federal service on active duty with the Army of the United States, the United States Navy, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, the Coast Guard, or the State Militia called into the service or training of the United States of America, or (2) in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service, may have his license restored or reinstated without paying any lapsed renewal fees or restoration fee if within 2 years after termination of such service, training or education other than by dishonorable discharge he furnishes the Department with an affidavit to the effect that he has been so engaged and that his service, training or education has been so terminated.
