4732.18 Restoration of license.

At any time after the suspension or revocation of a license, the state board of psychology may restore the license upon the written finding by the board that circumstances so warrant. At the time it restores a license, the board may impose restrictions and limitations on the practice of the license holder.

The board may require a person seeking restoration of a license to submit to mental, substance abuse, cognitive, or physical evaluations, or a combination of these evaluations. Evaluations shall be conducted by qualified individuals selected by the board. The costs of any evaluative processes shall be paid by the applicant for restoration. A person requesting restoration of a license is deemed to have given consent to submit to a mental or physical examination when directed to do so in writing by the board and to have waived all objections to the admissibility of testimony or examination reports that constitute a privileged communication.

As a further condition of license restoration, the board may require the applicant to do both of the following:

(A) Take the examination selected by the board under section 4732.11 of the Revised Code and receive a score acceptable to the board;

(B) Participate in board processes designed to expose the applicant to Chapter 4732. of the Revised Code and rules promulgated thereunder, which may include passing a written or oral examination on the Ohio laws and rules governing psychologists and school psychologists.
