How To Pass Your Claims Adjuster Exam
Steps For Earning Your Insurance Claims Adjuster Exam
An Insurance Claims Adjuster is the individual that handles claims regarding property or auto damage. Below are the recommended steps for passing your Claims Adjuster exam and earning your adjuster license.
- Step 1: Review Your State's Licensing Requirements
Since insurance licensing is state-specific, you want to make sure you qualify or meet the basic requirements for the state in which you want to be licensed. In most states, you have to be at least 18 years old, pass a background check, and pass your state's exam. Click your state below to find your state's requirements - and suggested licensing courses.
- Step 2: Register For You State's Pre-Licensing Course
Our courses are designed to meet the state pre-licensing requirements, as well as prepare you for your state exam. Once you are done, you will be ready to take your state's exam. Click you state from the table above for information on where and how to register for your exam.
- Step 3: Study For Your Exam!
While exams often require you to know terms, definitions, and rules, adjuster licensing exams are often more than just memorization, so make sure you understand the concepts. The best way to do this is to take as many of the practice exams that come with your pre-licensing course materials as possible.

- Step 5: Submit An Application To Get Your License
Once you pass your exam, the next step is to apply for your license. In most states, this typically includes completing the application and paying a licensing fee.
- Step 6: Take An Xactimate Course
Xactimate is a claims estimation software that is the industry standard used by insurance companies, third-party claims handlers, and independent adjusters across the United States. Though not required to know Xactimate for earning your license, knowing it can certainly help you get a job and get up to speed faster.
- Step 7: Consider Getting A Reciprocal License To Enhance Your Reach
Once licensed in your home state, you may want to consider getting a non-resident license in other states to increase your marketability to employers and increase the number of claims you can work on. An example of this would include someone living in Georgia who wants to help with hurricane-related claims in Florida.
Good luck earning your insurance claims adjuster license!
