The Veterinary Medical Board is currently experiencing significant delays in processing renewal applications involving unmatched fingerprint results. Pursuant to Business and Professions Code section 121, if you have met all renewal requirements prior to license expiration, including submitting fingerprints to the Department of Justice as required under CCR section 2010.05, you will not be deemed to have expired or illegally engaged in the practice of veterinary medicine pending receipt of evidence of license renewal. Make sure to retain your copy of your Live Scan form from submitting your fingerprints as evidence of completing the fingerprint requirement prior to license expiration.
For additional information regarding fingerprints and frequently asked questions, please read Clarifications Regarding Fingerprint Requirements on our website.
The Veterinary Medical Board has reported that it is experiencing delays in processing applications and renewals.
CVMA has prepared an in-depth article on the problem.
