Getting an insurance license
Getting an insurance license requires a few basic steps. Keep in mind there are slight differences from state to state. In general the steps are very similar regardless of the state you are applying in. There will be some costs for obtaining the license which add up to about $500. Costs can run higher in states that require fingerprinting in order to get a license. Common finger print states are Florida and California.

The first step is to take a pre licensing course if your state requires it. Most pre license courses are completed on line. There are a number of companies that offer pre licensing courses such as Kaplan and AD Banker to name a few. Most states will require an approved protor to be present during the pre licensing online course.
The second step is to order the materials needed to take the state insurance exam. There are a number of companies that will provide the material. We suggest using a book and online test questions only. In person licensing classes are usually expensive and time consuming. We find most new people can pass the exam by using the book and sample study questions online. This is not to say the test is easy but a class is not needed for most people.
The third step would be to pay the licensing fee to your applicable state in order to get the license. Most states will give you access to the license online within a few days after passing the exam. Some states will require you wait until the paper copy comes in the mail. Licensed agents can then obtain E and O insurance (most companies require it) and start to apply with the companies you want to represent.
