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, it’s time to begin studying for the Nevada insurance exams. The next step after completing all of your pre-license coursework or self-study is to take the insurance exam. You will take one exam for each combined line of insurance you wish to carry. Property and Casualty are combined as one exam. The same is true for Life, Accident, and Health.

Nevada requires that all insurance license applications provide fingerprints prior to licensing. Giving your fingerprints will initiate a background check. If you have any prior misdemeanors or felonies, this may affect the outcome of your licensing efforts. After you have passed your exams, the next step is to apply for your license. If you have more than one line of authority that you tested for, be sure to apply for all of those lines. Once you have submitted your application and passed your exams, your license application will be reviewed by the state. Your background check will also be reviewed.

For more information, call the Department of Insurance at (775) 687-0700.

The first step is to take and pass the Nevada Insurance Adjuster License exam. Depending on the lines of authority you wish to carry, you may need to take more than one exam. The State of Nevada requires that all insurance license applications provide fingerprints prior to licensing. Giving your fingerprints will initiate a background check. If you have any prior misdemeanors or felonies, this may affect the outcome of your licensing efforts. If you have specific questions regarding things that may come up on your background check you may call the Nevada Division of Insurance at (775) 687-0700 or visit their website. Once you have completed your pre-licensing requirement and examination, the next step is applying for your license. Once you have submitted your application and have completed all the other requirements, your license application will be reviewed by the state. This process generally takes two to six (2-6) weeks. Depending on the results of your background check, the Department of Insurance may request more information or documentation.

The state of Nevada requires that most resident individual licensees complete thirty (30) credit hours of continuing education every three-year renewal period. Three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics. In Nevada, insurance licenses expire every three years. Your license renewal date is the first of the month that follows that date you were issued the license, triennially. This means that if you were licensed in April, your license must be renewed by May 1, three years later.

In most cases, you can take only the courses that are approved for the line of authority you hold. After you have completed your continuing education and you are within 90 days of your license expiration, you may renew your Nevada insurance license online. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

Please note: There is a fee of $185 per application to renew your license.

Once this process is complete, your license will be renewed and your new expiration date will be three years from your previous expiration date.

There is no requirement to take another exam from the state, though depending on the format of your continuing education, it is possible that you may take a short knowledge test at the end of the course to be sure that you understand important insurance concepts, laws, and regulations.

If this is the state you reside in, then renewing your license will also keep any non-resident license you have in good standing. You will still need to pay the license renewal fee for non-resident licenses held in other states.

If you have a producer license in more than one line of authority (ex. Property & Casualty and Life & Health), you don’t need to complete double the hours.

You may take your continuing education courses either in person in a classroom setting or online as a self-paced course. The online courses usually require a reading of the subject at hand, then a test at the end.

Upon completion of these courses, the company who you took the course from should send the certificate of completion directly to the state. You may want to print a copy of this certificate to keep in your records just in case there is a dispute later. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.
