"(c) An individual insurance producer who allows his or her license to lapse may, within one year from the due date of the renewal fee, reinstate the same license without the necessity of passing a written examination; provided, that a penalty in the amount of twice the unpaid renewal fee shall be required. "(d) An insurance producer who is unable to comply with license renewal procedures due to military service or some other extenuating circumstance may request a waiver of those procedures.
