A nonresident may operate as an auctioneer, apprentice auctioneer, or special auctioneer within the state by conforming to this chapter. The department of agriculture may, within its discretion, waive the testing and schooling requirements for a nonresident, provided that the nonresident holds a valid auctioneer or apprentice auctioneer license issued by a state with which the department has entered into a reciprocal licensing agreement. Nonresidents wishing to so operate in this state shall make application in writing to the department and furnish the department with proof of their ability to conduct an auction, proof of license and financial responsibility, as well as other information that the department may request. If a state with which the department has entered into a reciprocal licensing agreement does not require an apprenticeship, the applicant shall provide proof of license for a period of at least one year prior to receipt of the application. This section does not apply to nonresident auctioneers who do not have a license from a state with which the department has entered into a reciprocal licensing agreement.
