    Sec. 50. Issuance of license; renewal; fees nonrefundable.
    (a) The State Fire Marshal shall, upon the applicant's satisfactory completion of the requirements authorized under this Act, and upon receipt of the requisite fees, issue the appropriate license showing the name and business location of the licensee, the dates of issuance and expiration.
    (b) Each licensee may apply for renewal of his or her license upon payment of fees, as set forth in this Act. The expiration date and renewal period for each license issued under this Act shall be set by rule. Failure to renew within 60 days of the date shall lapse the license. A lapsed license may not be reinstated until a written application is filed, the renewal fee is paid, and the reinstatement fee established by the Board is paid. Renewal and reinstatement fees shall be waived for persons who did not renew while on active duty in the military and who file for renewal or restoration within one year after discharge from the service. A lapsed license may not be reinstated after 5 years have elapsed except upon passing an examination to determine fitness to have the license restored and by paying the required fees.
    (c) All fees paid pursuant to this Act are non-refundable.
