Yes, provided that a renewal application is received within 60 days after expiration date along with a reinstatement fee that is 50% above and beyond the renewal fee. After 60 days, the applicant must meet all initial requirements to include submission of fingerprints, initial applications with fees and completion of entry-level training.  Provisions are not available for reinstatement for Bail Bondsmen and Bail Enforcement Agents.

No. Timely renewal of applications for licenses, registrations, and certifications are the responsibility of the individual businesses, training schools, instructors, compliance agents, and individual personnel. DCJS normally sends out a reminder as a courtesy to the last known mailing address or email address, but due to current technical difficulties the Department is unable to send individual reminders. The Department is working to address this issue. 

To ensure that you renew timely, remember the expiration date is listed directly on your credential, and it is your responsibility to submit for renewal 30 days in advance of the expiration.  Should you fail to renew prior to the expiration, you may apply for reinstatement during the immediate 60 days after your expiration date with the exception of firearm endorsement expirations which must be renewed by the expiration.  There are limited reasons in which an individual may request an extension, for more information on extensions, see the Extension FAQ.

All renewals must be received at least 30 days prior to expiration. 

Bail Bondsmen Licenses, Bail Enforcement Licenses and Firearm Endorsements must be renewed with all applicable training completed prior to the expiration date or initial application requirements must be met to include initial fees, fingerprint submittal and entry-level training requirements.  Firearm endorsement requalification may be completed only within the 90 days immediately preceding the expiration of the active endorsement.

No. The regulations do not permit DCJS to reinstate renewal applications received after the 60 day reinstatement period has expired. 

No, you are not authorized to work during the reinstatement period. 

Yes, as long as you are able to provide current liability insurance at the time of reinstatement.  You must be non-operational until you are reinstated.  If you are in violation of this requirement and provide unlicensed, uninsured services, you may face monetary sanctions up to $2500.00 per day of uninsured activity or be denied the ability to reinstate or reapply for a license or certification.
