1. All licenses expire annually as of July first but may be renewed by registration with the board and payment of the registration renewal fee established by the board. On June first of each year, the board shall mail a notice to each licensed veterinarian that the licensee's license will expire as of July first and provide the licensee with a form for registration. The board shall issue a new certificate of registration to a person reregistering under this section. Any person who willfully or by neglect fails to renew a license and who practices veterinary medicine after the expiration of the license is practicing in violation of this chapter.
2. Any qualified person may renew an expired license within two years of the date of its expiration by making written application for renewal and paying the current renewal fee plus all delinquent renewal fees. After two years have elapsed since the date of expiration, a license may not be renewed, but the holder may make application for a new license and take the license examination. The board may by rule waive the payment of the registration renewal fee of a licensed veterinarian during the period when the veterinarian is on active duty with any branch of the armed services of the United States, not to exceed the longer of three years or the duration of active duty.
3. The board may adopt rules establishing requirements for the continuing education of veterinarians and veterinary technicians. The board may refuse to renew or may suspend, revoke, or place on probationary status any license issued under this chapter upon proof the licensee has failed to meet the applicable continuing education requirements. Applicants for accreditation of continuing education courses, classes, or activities may be charged a reasonable fee determined by the board.
