Each line requires 20 hours of prelicensing, which you can earn with a Georgia insurance license training course from Agent Broker Training Center.

Georgia Insurance License Requirements: How To Get Your Georgia Insurance License

Step 1. Pre-License Education

The first step in getting a Georgia insurance license is taking pre-license education courses. These are state-required courses pertaining to the subject matter that will be on the license exam.

To fulfill the Georgia pre-license requirement, you must complete forty (40) hours of education coursework per line of authority that you wish to hold. The good news: Life, Accident, & Sickness (LA&S) and Property & Casualty (P&C) lines are combined lines in Georgia, so unlike states where you must take a separate exam for each coverage area, you need to take only two exams if you wish to get a license for both Life & Health and P&C.

You will receive a certificate upon completion of the course. Keep this certificate, as you will need it when submitting your application.

Step 2. Fill Out You Georgia License Application And Schedule Your Exam

You must take an exam for each line of insurance you wish to carry, so after you have completed your required pre-licensing education, the next step is to apply for your license and schedule your exam (or exams if applying for more than one type of license). We have provided contact information for Georgia insurance licensing herein.

Tip: Whether you take on in-person, online, or self-studay Georgia pre-licensing course, all come with many sample exam questions. We suggest you take as many of these sample exams as possible, so you might want to leave two weeks between when you pass your pre-licensing course and your exam date.
