1) Resident Renewal and Reinstatement Process
Resident licensees are required to renew their license prior to its expiration. A licensee that misses the renewal deadline may file a late renewal request, which includes a $15 late fee in addition to the renewal fee, within 15 days of the license expiration date.
Licensees that fail to successfully renew their license may reinstate within 12 months of their expiration date. To be considered for reinstatement the following must be submitted:
- Form GID-101B-AL
- Completion of all required CE
- The total number of CE hours required can vary based on the length of time the licensee has held the license, carry-over hours and professional designations. You may check your CE transcript at www.sircon.com/georgia.
- Payment of Required Fees
- Renewal fees (based on license type) + $15 late fee + $15 application fee + $150 reinstatement penalty
- If a licensee fails to complete the reinstatement process within 6 months of the expiration date of their license, the licensee must submit electronic fingerprints through Gemalto Cogent.
If the reinstatement process is not completed within 12 months of the expiration date of the license, all pre-licensing requirements must be met if the applicant wishes to reactivate their license.
