(3) No distributor whose license for any place of business has been revoked shall engage in business under this part at such place of business, after the revocation, until a new license is issued. No distributor whose license for any place of business has been revoked shall be permitted to have the license renewed or to obtain an additional license for any other place of business for a period of 6 months after the date such revocation becomes final.
