Wednesday, September 17, 2014 07:59 AM

 The following section would be repealed.  Different language to "replace it" has been proposed elsewhere.

(a) If an applicant notifies the board no later than one day prior to the date of examination that he or she is unable to take the examination, the board will apply the examination fee to a subsequent application to take the examination.

(b) If an applicant fails to appear for a scheduled examination without prior notice to the board, the applicant must pay another examination fee when he or she applies for a subsequent examination unless the board excuses the non-appearance as provided in subsection (c) of this section.

(c) An applicant who fails to appear for examination without prior notice may be excused for illness, death in the immediate family, disabling traffic accident, court appearance, jury duty, or military duty, or other extenuating circumstances beyond the control of the applicant. The applicant must submit to the board a notarized affidavit setting out the reasons for not appearing, along with any supporting documents, no later than 14 days after the examination date. Documentation for medical absences must have the original signature of the medical practitioner. Stamped signatures will not be accepted.
