I think most sates give you a grace period if you miss your renewal date, but it's not long. If I'm not mistaken there are usually late fees if/when you do try to renew it.
After that grace period however, yes, you do have to take the exam again. I know someone who has had to do it. He strongly advises against letting your license lapse.

1. If CT was the state in which you got licensed (i.e., you registered and sat for the exam in CT), I would not let it lapse. There is usually a question on comity applications that requires information from the state in which you took the exam, and they will be less likely to send the necessary paperwork if you are no longer a dues paying member.
2. NEVER let your OH license lapse if you ever envision needing it again at any point in the future. I have been told that if you let an OH license lapse, the only way to bring it current again is to retake the PE exam.

I never practice there, my company doesn't either so they wouldn't pick up the costs, and they have real funny PDH rules, so it wasn't worth it.
Most states have an inactive or retired status, which is better than simply letting it lapse.

when we say retake the exam, do we also mean going through all that tiresome reference collecting from other PEs and same application process like the first time or do we mean just re-taking the exam? i am in CT and will take my original exam in October but just asking . and other than paying yearly fees, what else do we have to do to maintain it?
