(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2028)
Expiration, renewal, and restoration of license.
(a) The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be determined by the Commission and set by rule. Every holder of a license under this Act may renew his or her license during the 60-day period preceding the expiration date thereof upon payment of the required renewal fees.
(b) Any person who has practiced in another jurisdiction and has permitted his or her license to expire or had his or her license placed on inactive status may have his or her license restored by making application to the Commission and filing proof acceptable to the Commission, as defined by the Commission by rule, of his or her fitness to have the license restored, including evidence attesting to active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Commission and by paying the required restoration fee.
(c) If a person has not maintained an active practice in another jurisdiction satisfactory to the Commission and has permitted his or her license to expire or has had his or her license placed on inactive status, the Commission shall determine his or her fitness to resume active status and may require satisfactory evaluation of his or her skills.
(d) Any person whose license expires while he or she is (i) in federal service on active duty with the Armed Forces of the United States, or the State Militia called into service or training, or (ii) in training or education under the supervision of the United States preliminary to induction into the military service, may have his or her license renewed or restored without paying any lapsed renewal fees, provided that he or she furnishes the Commission with satisfactory evidence to the effect that he or she has been so engaged.
(e) Any person whose license is expired or on inactive status and who practices interpreting without being exempt under this Act shall be considered to be practicing without a license, which constitutes grounds for discipline under this Act.
