Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (225 ILCS 745/45)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
    Sec. 45. Examination; failure or refusal to take the examination.
    (a) The Department shall authorize examinations of applicants for original licensure as a Professional Geologist at such times and places as it may determine. The examination for licensure as a Licensed Professional Geologist shall be a 2-part examination, with one part fairly testing an applicant's knowledge of the fundamental theory and concepts of the science of geology, including subjects that are generally taught in geology curricula of accredited colleges and universities, and the other part testing the applicant's knowledge of the practical application and uses of the theory and science of geology.
    (b) Applicants for examinations shall pay, either to the Department or to the designated testing service, a fee covering the cost of providing the examination. Failure to appear for the examination on the scheduled date at the time and place specified after the application for examination has been received and acknowledged by the Department or the designated testing service shall result in forfeiture of the examination fee.
    (c) If the applicant neglects, fails, or refuses to take an examination or fails to pass an examination for a license under this Act within 6 years after filing an application, the application shall be denied. However, the applicant may thereafter submit a new application accompanied by the required fee. The applicant shall meet the requirements in force at the time of making the new application.
    (d) The Department may employ consultants for the purpose of preparing and conducting examinations.
    (e) The Department shall have the authority to adopt or recognize, in part or in whole, examinations prepared, administered, or graded by other organizations that are determined appropriate to measure the qualifications of an applicant for licensure as a Licensed Professional Geologist.
