318.054 License expiration — Notice — Renewal, revival fee.
(1) The initial license for a master or journeyman plumber shall expire on the
last day of the licensee’s birth month in the following year. The office
may reduce the license fee on a pro rata basis for initial licenses issued
for less than twelve (12) months. Renewed licenses shall expire on the
last day of the licensee’s birth month of each year after the date of
issuance of the renewed license.
(2) The office shall send each licensed master and journeyman plumber a
notice advising them that the annual license renewal fee is due. The
notice shall be sent to the licensee’s last known address no later than
thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the license. The annual license
renewal fee shall be a reasonable fee set by regulation of the office. The
13
fee for the renewal of a master plumber’s license shall exceed the fee
charged for a journeyman plumber’s license.
(3) Any master or journeyman plumber who fails to renew his license prior to
expiration may have his license renewed upon payment of the required
renewal fee and a revival fee. The revival fee for a master plumber shall
be five dollars ($5) and for a journeyman plumber three dollars ($3). If
the renewal and revival fees are not paid one hundred eighty (180) days
after the license expires, such licenses shall be automatically canceled by
operation of law for nonpayment; provided, however, that such licenses
may be reinstated upon payment of all delinquent renewal fees plus a
revival fee of ten dollars ($10) for a master plumber and six dollars ($6)
for a journeyman plumber. Upon presentation of proper evidence, the
office may waive payment of any renewal or revival fee specified herein
for persons serving on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United
States.
