The license of any licensee who fails to file an application for renewal on or before the deadline established in rules adopted by the section under section 4755.06 of the Revised Code shall expire automatically, unless the section, for good cause shown, determines that the application for renewal could not have been filed by such day. Except as provided in sections 3123.41 to 3123.50 of the Revised Code and any applicable rules adopted under section 3123.63 of the Revised Code, the section may renew a license while the license is suspended, but the renewal shall not affect the suspension.
