Get Your Texas Insurance Adjuster License!
Becoming a Texas Claims Adjuster can be an appealing profession that can be quite lucrative.
But before you can begin working as an Insurance Adjuster, you must first obtain your TX Insurance Adjuster License.
TX Adjuster License Requirements:
Texas Department of Insurance requires staff and independent adjusters to take a state-approved 40-hour live class or online course offered by an approved education provider. The candidate must also pass a state certification exam administered by the education provider or the state's testing administrator.
- 18 years of age or older
- US Citizen or legal alien who possess a work authorization from the US Immigration and Naturalization Services
- Complete our Adjuster Licensing Course –or- Pass the TX state exam administered by Pearson VUE Testing Centers
- Complete the Texas Insurance Adjuster License application and submit with applicable fees
- 30 hours of CE is required every two years (2 hrs in Consumer Protection and/or Adjuster Ethics)
The exam must be proctored by a disinterested third party and has a 3-hour time limit. The disinterested third party may not be related to the student, may not be the student's employer or employee, and may not otherwise benefit from the student passing the course. Texas also requires that a notarized Pre-Licensing Self-Study Course Affidavit form (included with your online course) be completed and submitted to the education provider.
You may choose your Proctor. It cannot be a friend, relative, or business associate. Common proctors include teaching staff of an accredited institution of higher education, a member of the Armed Forces, Human Resource Director or Manager, High School Administrator, or a local librarian.
If you are taking the online course and successfully pass the certification exam, you will need to send in your completed and notarized Pre-Licensing Self-Study Course Affidavit form. Upon receipt of your form you will be mailed a Certificate of Completion within 5-7 business days. You will need to mail the Certificate of Completion along with your fingerprint receipt, Texas Adjuster Application (obtained from the Texas Department of Insurance website), and a $50 fee to the Texas DOI.
Non-Resident Texas Insurance Adjuster License
Non-resident applicants for a TX Adjuster License must submit an application. Please visit the National Insurance Producer Registry for more information on Texas non-resident licensing.
The Texas P&C Adjuster license is the most prominent adjuster license in the country. Once licensed in Texas, a non-resident license can be applied for, based on reciprocity rules, in other states without meeting additional licensing requirements. Check with your own state's Department of Insurance to see how the Texas PC Adjuster License can be used in your state.
An individual residing in a state that does not require an adjuster license may elect to take the Texas PC Adjuster License course and exam to increase their knowledge and credibility in those states. Individuals residing in a state that requires adjuster licensing and is reciprocal with Texas may still choose to obtain the Texas license since it is one of the most widely recognized adjuster licenses in the country. Please check with your state insurance department to see if your state is reciprocal with Texas.
