The department shall, before making a final determination to deny an application for a license, revoke a license, suspend a license, issue a reprimand, or impose a civil penalty for violation of this article, notify the applicant or licensee in writing of the reasons for such proposed denial, revocation, suspension, reprimand, or imposition of a civil penalty and afford the applicant or licensee an opportunity to be heard in person or by counsel. Such notification shall be served personally or by certified mail or in any manner authorized by the civil practice law and rules for service of a summons. If a hearing is requested, such hearing shall be held at such time and place as the department shall prescribe and shall be conducted in accordance with the provisions of the state administrative procedure act. If the applicant or licensee fails to make a written request for a hearing within thirty days after receipt of such notification, then the notification shall become the final determination of the department. The department, acting by such officer or person in the department as the secretary may designate, shall have the power to subpoena and bring before the officer or person so designated any person in this state and administer an oath to and take testimony of any person or cause his or her deposition to be taken. A subpoena issued under this section shall be regulated by the civil practice law and rules. If, after such hearing, the license is denied, revoked, or suspended, a reprimand is issued, or a civil penalty is imposed, written notice of such determination shall be served upon the applicant or licensee personally or by certified mail or in any manner authorized by the civil practice law and rules for the service of a summons.
