Re-activating or Restoring a Forfeited License

If your license is renewed on INACTIVE status, and you wish to change to active status, or if for any reason your license is forfeited on January 1, 2013 (whether you voluntarily did not renew on time, you forgot to renew, your check was returned by the financial institution, etc.) and you wish to restore your license, the table below lists documents and fees which must be submitted to the Licensing Branch. If your license was forfeited before or on January 1, 2013, or if you apply for restoration after December 31, 2012, you must submit a Restoration Application (call 586-3000 to obtain application) and follow the instructions that accompany that application.
