(c) Payment of the active license renewal fee established by the board under subsection (8) of this section.

(3) Failure to submit a completed renewal application annually by December 31, or by such date as may be specified by board rule, results in the lapse of the license. A lapsed license may be restored by the board upon receipt, not more than 30 days after the license lapses, of a completed renewal application and payment of the restoration fee under subsection (8) of this section.

(4) A license that has lapsed for more than one month may be restored by the board upon payment of the restoration fee established by the board and submission of a completed renewal application and any other information required by the board.
