FAQs

The first step is to decide on what type or types of insurance licenses you need to get. After that, you’ll need to begin studying for the 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, unless you’re applying for the Property or Casualty lines, which must be applied for together.

 

Once you’ve completed your exams, you’re ready to apply for your license(s). If you have more than one line of authority that you have taken the exam 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.

After you have completed your continuing education and you are within 90 days of your license expiration, you may renew your Puerto Rico insurance license online via the National Insurance Producer Registry. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.
