Section 626.641, Florida Statutes 2003
626.641 Duration of suspension or revocation.--
(1) The department or office shall, in its order suspending a license or appointment or in its order suspending the eligibility of a person to hold or apply for such license or appointment, specify the period during which the suspension is to be in effect; but such period shall not exceed 2 years. The license, appointment, or eligibility shall remain suspended during the period so specified, subject, however, to any rescission or modification of the order by the department or office, or modification or reversal thereof by the court, prior to expiration of the suspension period. A license, appointment, or eligibility which has been suspended shall not be reinstated except upon request for such reinstatement; but the department or office shall not grant such reinstatement if it finds that the circumstance or circumstances for which the license, appointment, or eligibility was suspended still exist or are likely to recur.
(2) No person or appointee under any license or appointment revoked by the department or office, nor any person whose eligibility to hold same has been revoked by the department or office, shall have the right to apply for another license or appointment under this code within 2 years from the effective date of such revocation or, if judicial review of such revocation is sought, within 2 years from the date of final court order or decree affirming the revocation. The department or office shall not, however, grant a new license or appointment or reinstate eligibility to hold such license or appointment if it finds that the circumstance or circumstances for which the eligibility was revoked or for which the previous license or appointment was revoked still exist or are likely to recur; if an individual's license as agent or customer representative or eligibility to hold same has been revoked upon the ground specified in s. 626.611(12), the department or office shall refuse to grant or issue any new license or appointment so applied for.
(3) If licenses as agent or customer representative, or the eligibility to hold same, as to the same individual have been revoked at two separate times, the department shall not thereafter grant or issue any license under this code as to such individual.
(4) During the period of suspension or revocation of the license or appointment, the former licensee or appointee shall not engage in or attempt or profess to engage in any transaction or business for which a license or appointment is required under this code or directly or indirectly own, control, or be employed in any manner by any insurance agent or agency or adjuster or adjusting firm.
