Virginia Administrative Code
Title 18. Professional And Occupational Licensing
Agency 80. Board For Hearing Aid Specialists And Opticians
Chapter 30. Opticians Regulations

18VAC80-30-100. License renewal required.

A. Licenses issued under this chapter shall expire 24 months from the last day of the month in which the license was issued.

B. The board shall mail a renewal application form to the licensee at the last known mailing address. Failure to receive this notice does not relieve the licensee of the obligation to renew. Prior to the expiration date shown on the license, each licensee desiring to renew his license must return all of the required forms and the appropriate fee to the board as outlined in 18VAC80-30-50. If the licensee fails to receive the renewal notice, a copy of the existing license shall be submitted to the board with the required fee.

C. Licensees shall be required to renew their license by submitting the appropriate fee made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia. Any licensee who fails to renew within 30 days after the license expires shall pay a late renewal fee, in addition to the renewal fee, as set out in 18VAC80-30-50.

D. The board, in its discretion and for just cause, may deny renewal of a license. Upon such denial, the applicant for renewal may request that a proceeding be held in accordance with the provision of the Administrative Process Act (§ 2.2-4000 et seq. of the Code of Virginia).
