Did you know this about inactive license status:

"A licensee can renew as inactive for up to twenty (20) years."

"A licensee may return to active status after having been on an inactive status for five (5) years or LESS by taking and submitting proof of sixteen (16) approved hours of continuing education, including all required hours (TBCE and/or Medicare), with an active renewal form and a cashier’s check or money order for the renewal fee. The licensee can then return to inactive at the next renewal."

"If a licensee has been inactive for more than five (5) years, the licensee can return to active status upon successfully passing Part IV of the NBCE and the Board’s Texas Jurisprudence Examination or through other means if the license is exempt."

"An inactive license cannot be processed online."
