FAQs

Depending on what type of insurance agent you want to be or what types of policies you need to sell, you will need to choose what type or types of insurance licenses you need to get. After you’ve determined which licenses you need and completed all of your pre-licensure coursework or self-study, you need to take the insurance exam. You’ll need to take one exam for each line of insurance you wish to carry.

Prior to licensing, the State of Alaska requires that all insurance license applications provide fingerprints and go through a background check. If you have any prior misdemeanors or felonies, this may affect the outcome of your licensing efforts.

When you’ve completed your exams, fingerprinting, and background check, you’re ready to apply for your license. It takes at least seventy-two (72) hours after passing your license exams for the information to come from Pearson Vue to the state. If you have more than one line of authority that you have passed the exam for, be sure to apply for all of those lines.

After submitting your license application to the state, you can mail in your fingerprint card. You will send this card to the Juneau office.

If you have any questions, call the Alaska Department of Insurance at (907) 465-2515 or email the License Department.
