(3) If the applicant satisfies the requirements for renewal during the extended term of license, the beginning date of the new renewal license shall be October 1.
(b) If a person fails to renew a license for any classification of real estate appraiser prior to its expiration or within a period of extension granted by the board pursuant to this article, the person may obtain a renewal license by satisfying all of the requirements for renewal and by the payment of a late renewal fee as set by the board.
