A private patrol operator license, branch office certificate, and pocket card issued under this chapter expires two years following the date of issuance or on the assigned renewal date. Every private patrol operator issued a license under this chapter that expires on or after January 1, 1997, and who is also issued or renews a firearms qualification card on or after January 1, 1997, shall be placed on a cyclical renewal so that the license expires on the expiration date of the firearms qualification card. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the bureau is authorized to extend or shorten the first term of licensure following January 1, 1997, and to prorate the required license fee in order to implement this cyclical renewal.

(Repealed and added by Stats. 1997, Ch. 401, Sec. 21. Effective January 1, 1998.)

7586.1.
  

(a) To renew an unexpired license or certificate, the licensee shall, on or before the date on which it would otherwise expire, apply for renewal on a form prescribed by the director, and pay the renewal fee prescribed by this chapter. On renewal, such evidence of renewal of the license or certificate as the director may prescribe, and renewal pocket cards for the persons mentioned in Section 7582.13, shall be issued to the licensee.

(b) A license or certificate shall not be renewed until any and all fines assessed pursuant to Section 7587.7 and not resolved in accordance with the provisions of that section have been paid.

(Added by Stats. 1994, Ch. 1285, Sec. 6. Effective January 1, 1995.)

7586.2.
  

Except as otherwise provided in this article, an expired license or branch office certificate may be renewed at any time within three years after its expiration on filing of application for renewal on a form prescribed by the director, and payment of the renewal fee in effect on the last preceding regular renewal date. If the license or certificate is renewed more than 30 days after its expiration, the licensee, as a condition precedent to renewal, shall also pay the delinquency fee prescribed in this chapter. Renewal under this section shall be effective on the date on which the application is filed, on the date on which the renewal fee is paid, or on the date on which the delinquency fee, if any, is paid, whichever last occurs. If so renewed, the license or certificate shall continue in effect through the date provided in Section 7586 which next occurs after the effective date of the renewal, when it shall expire if it is not again renewed.

Renewal of a license or certificate shall not prohibit the bringing of disciplinary proceedings for an act committed before the effective date of the renewal.

(Amended by Stats. 1998, Ch. 970, Sec. 18.7. Effective January 1, 1999.)

7586.3.
  

A suspended license or branch office certificate is subject to expiration and shall be renewed as provided in this article, but renewal of the license does not entitle the licensee, while the license remains suspended and until it is reinstated, to engage in the licensed activity, or in any other activity, or in any other activity or conduct in violation of the order or judgment by which the license was suspended, and renewal of the branch office certificate does not entitle the licensee, while the certificate remains suspended, and until it is reinstated, to engage in the licensed activity at the location for which the certificate was issued, or to engage in any other activity or conduct in violation of the order or judgment by which the certificate was suspended.

(Added by Stats. 1994, Ch. 1285, Sec. 6. Effective January 1, 1995.)

7586.4.
  

A revoked license or branch office certificate is subject to expiration as provided in this article, but it may not be renewed. If it is reinstated after its expiration, the licensee, as a condition precedent to its reinstatement, shall pay a reinstatement fee in an amount equal to the renewal fee in effect on the last regular renewal date before the date on which it is reinstated, plus the delinquency fee, if any, accrued at the time of its revocation.

(Added by Stats. 1994, Ch. 1285, Sec. 6. Effective January 1, 1995.)

7586.5.
  

A license or branch office certificate which is not renewed within three years after its expiration may not be renewed, restored, reinstated, or reissued thereafter.

The holder of the license or certificate may obtain a new license or certificate only on compliance with all of the provisions of this chapter relating to the issuance of an original license or certificate.

(Amended by Stats. 1998, Ch. 970, Sec. 18.8. Effective January 1, 1999.)
