I let my license expire. How do I have it reinstated?

Tim Smith -

You may renew if your license has not been expired for (3) three years or less and you will be required to pay a late fee. If your license has been expired for more than three years and pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 62-4-117(d) you are required to retake the law and practical portions of the exam and reapply.  You may access our website at http://tn.gov/assets/entities/commerce/attachments/Cosmetology-Application-To-Test.pdf  to download a reinstatement application.  Please be sure to read the Eligibility Verification of Entitlements Attestation http://tn.gov/assets/entities/commerce/attachments/EligibilityVerificationForEntitlementsAct.pdf and submit this page with the application as well.  Instructions for registering for the exam are included with the application.  Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
