License Reinstatement

License Reinstatement

The Division of Professions & Occupations (DPO) has implemented Colorado legislation to establish reinstatement for a military member’s expired license. License reinstatement may be available to members of the military currently on active duty for a minimum of 30 days and veterans who have not been dishonorably discharged.  The requirements for reinstatement are specified in state law, and generally include submission of an application, payment of fees, and compliance with the applicable practice act. For licenses expired more than 2 years, demonstration of competency to practice may also be required.
