In all seriousness, Oregon’s HI licensing folks (Construction Contractor’s Board - CCB) are VERY difficult to deal with and very often receive insurance/bond info and don’t process it. I learned years ago to NEVER trust what a person on the phone says when they tell you things look with your license. Until the website shows a new expiration date don’t stop checking and calling.

Octopus Home Inspections License is Active. Matt is correct, the CCB made a mistake and didn’t process my bond in time. I had to arrange for a reinstatement rider to get active again.
