Getting Started: How To Understand The Insurance Licensing Requirements For Your State And Earn Your Insurance Licence
An insurance license allows you to sell insurance products in your state legally. While each state has unique requirements, much of the process will be the same across the country. The following steps will put you on the path toward your career as an insurance agent.Step 1: Choose A License
Before you can become an insurance agent, you'll need to decide which type of insurance license you want, as well as where you want to base your practice.
If you'd like to sell insurance to neighboring states as well as your own, you'll need to receive a license for each one before conducting business. These are issued by the state's insurance commissioner. While you can get these licenses without being affiliated with a registered agency, affiliation is required before you can officially do business.
Licenses are also separated based on different insurance types, which are known as lines of authority. These include:
- Life and health
- Life-only or health-only
- Limited lines auto
- Personal lines
- Property and casualty
- Workers' compensation
You must have a license for each type of insurance you wish to sell, so knowing which career path you want to take is an essential first step. Different states break down these categories differently, so be sure to look up the licensing classification types specifically for the areas where you will do business.Step 2: Background Checks
While each state's specific requirements vary, you'll likely need to provide a background history, work history and a complete set of fingerprints that might be shared with various law enforcement agencies. Your insurance department will use the information to receive a national criminal background check.Step 3: Exam Preparation
Metting all pre-licensing requirements is an obligatory step before taking your state exam. Specifics vary from state to state, but many states require a certain number of hours in insurance licensing classes. These classes - which can be taken either in person or online - provide a general overview of insurance concepts and regulations.
Once you've completed any required pre-licensing course hours, you might need to take and pass a certification exam. A third-party proctor must monitor the exam.
Whether your state requires pre-licensing classes or you're free to take the state exam at your will, you can continue your exam preparation with self-study training materials. Course materials should be specific to your state.Step 4: Passing the State Exam
After you've done your research and finished any pre-licensing requirements, you'll put your knowledge to the test with your state exam. You must earn a passing score of 70 percent or higher to begin your rewarding career as an insurance agent.
