SECTION 7558-7560



7558.  A private investigator 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
investigator 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 private investigator license or pocket
card 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.



7558.1.  (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 7529, shall be issued to the licensee.
   (b) A license or certificate shall not be renewed until any and
all fines assessed pursuant to Section 7564 and not resolved in
accordance with the provisions of that section have been paid.



7558.5.  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 7558
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.



7559.  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.



7559.5.  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.



7560.  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.
