3 Common Penalties for Late Renewal

  1. Late fee: The most common penalty for late renewal is a late fee. The amount of the late fee will vary depending on the jurisdiction. For example, in California, the late fee for a late renewal is $50 for the first 30 days after the deadline, and $100 for each additional day.
  2. Suspension of license: If you fail to renew your license by the deadline, your license may be suspended. The length of the suspension will vary depending on the jurisdiction. For example, in California, a license suspension for late renewal can last up to 1 year.
  3. Reapplication: In some cases, you may be required to reapply for your license if you fail to renew it by the deadline. This can be a time-consuming and expensive process. For example, in California, you must pay a $200 application fee and complete a new background check if you are required to reapply for your license due to late renewal.
