What problem does it solve? The problem is professionals are charged a full 2 years or 1 year fees for a license that expires according to a set biennial date. Example: Right now if a doctor is licensed or reinstated Feb 14, 2019 they are charged for a full year and the license already expires 4 months later on June 30, 2019. And payment for a full two year license is due 7/1/2019. Think of it this way, what if all the drivers licensed in Feb on odd years had to pay again in four months for a two year license. Problem What is your solution and who does it apply to? DCA should use the same renewal protocol as DMV. Professionals would not be charged a full 2 years or 1 year fees for a license that expires according to a set biennial date. New Example: The new way would be like your driver license. The date of renewal would always be two years after the date on the license. If a doctor is licensed or reinstated Feb 14, 2019 their biennial license would expire exactly two years later Feb 14, 2021. What is the anticipated impact? This is a business friendly solution that can save young professionals and returning professionals to New Jersey a great amount, and will reduce the friction and frustration with state government allowing and promoting grow in New Jersey.
I fully agree with your proposal. MVC has unfortunately gone in the opposite direction. Drivers' licenses now expire on your birthday - during this transition, you receive less than four years. I renewed my license in September 2018, and it expires in March 2022.
