All new applicants who are issued a license within 120 days of the upcoming renewal expiration date will be issued a license with the subsequent expiration date. For example, licenses issued between July 1, 2013 and October 31, 2013 will reflect a license expiration date of October 31, 2015. Licenses issued prior to July 1, 2013 will reflect an expiration date of October 31, 2013, and must renew in the upcoming renewal period.
