Subchapter 003 : Professional Regulation(Cite as: 3 V.S.A. § 130)
§ 130. Provisional licensure
(a) The Director may issue a 90-day provisional license to an individual who has completed an application for full licensure and:
(1) whose eligibility for licensure is contingent upon acceptable verification of licensure from another jurisdiction;
(2) whose eligibility for licensure is contingent upon completion of a background check; or
(3) who is an active-duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces assigned to duty in Vermont or the spouse of such a member.
(b) A provisional license shall be based on a voluntary agreement between the applicant and the Office to expedite the applicant’s entry into the workforce, in which the applicant agrees to forgo the procedural rights associated with traditional licensure in exchange for a provisional license pending final determination of the license application.
(c) A provisional license shall only be issued to an applicant who can attest to material facts consistent with the requirements of full licensure, including the applicant’s standing in other U.S. jurisdictions, criminal history, and disciplinary history. An individual to whom a provisional license is issued shall expressly agree that the Office may summarily withdraw the provisional license upon discovery of any inconsistency or inaccuracy in the application materials.
(d) An individual aggrieved by a denial or summary withdrawal of a provisional license issued under this section shall have as an exclusive remedy the right to have the individual’s application for conventional licensure determined according to the usual process.
(e) The Director may extend a provisional license beyond the initial 90-day period if the reason for issuing the license, as set forth in subdivisions (a)(1)–(3) of this section, has not been resolved. (Added 2021, No. 107 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. May 9, 2022.)
