Please note that, in accordance with Sunset legislation effective September 1, 2005, you may only renew late up to one year after your license expires. There is no longer a category for "lapse less than/more than four years". Your application must be complete (form completely filled out, all required fees and copies attached, including CPR card, Neonatal Resuscitation card, continuing education, and jurisprudence examination) before it will be considered. Details may be found in the rules at 22 TAC Sec. 831.11.
If you do not renew within one year of expiration, you must reapply and meet the current requirements for a new license.
