If you have an insurance business in Illinois, or are starting one, you are probably considering applying for an Illinois property and casualty insurance license. Now is the perfect time to start preparing to pass the exam and get your license, and is the place to start.

What Does A Property And Casualty Agent Do?

A Property And Casualty (P&C) Insurance Agent sells policies on homes, apartments, vehicles, and other items that cover liability for property damage or injusries to visitors injured on your property. As a P&C Agent, you advise clients on what policies best suit their needs, tailor policies to fit their requirements, and help customers when they file a claim.

Why Get A Property And Casualty Illinois Insurance License

When you are an insurance agent in Illinois servicing cities like Chicago, Aurora, Rockford, Joliet, and Naperville, you don't want to limit yourself to offering just one kind of insurance policy. Insurance clients often look to a single broker for all their insurance needs, and those needs often involve property or casualty policies that cover their homes, autos, etc.

When you have your property and casualty insurance license, you will be able to provide this much-needed service to your Illinois community. Ideally, the relationship with your clients will be a long-term one, so you should stay current on your customers' needs, including adding or lowering coverage levels as people age or acquire more wealth and property.

Illinois Property And Casualty Pre-License Requirements For Resident Agents

Illinois has clear state requirements when it comes to pre-licensing before you can apply for a property and casualty license. Specifically, you must have 20 hours of pre-licensing education, 7.5 of them in a classroom setting, for each line or double that if you are seeking a combined property and casualty license.

Once you have completed your pre-licensing education course, you will need to earn certification by passing a pre-licensing exam in class. This will require you to score 70% or more correct. When you pass your pre-licensing exam you will get a Certificate of Completion and be eligible to register for the actual licensing exam through Pearson VUE. Be prepared to pay a $103 examination fee.

When you register for the state exam, you will receive a location, date and time for your exam. Be sure to bring your certificate of completion for the pre-licensing course, or you will not be allowed to sit for the exam. You also will need to have a primary government-issued photo I.D. as well as a secondary I.D.

The property examination is a 135-minute multiple-choice exam with 97 total questions (17 pre-test questions and 80 scored questions). The casualty examination is a 104-question exam (17 pre-tests, 87 scored) that also has a 135-minute time limit. Once again, 70% is a passing score.
