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 Utah 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. Once you have completed your exams, you are now ready to apply for your license. Prometric should have a kiosk at their location for you to apply for your license at. Since you cannot have your fingerprints taken until you have applied, we highly recommend that you apply while you are still at the Prometric center.

Utah 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. Once you have submitted your application and have filled all the other requirements, your license application will be reviewed by the state. Your background check initiated by the application will also be reviewed.

For more information, call the Department of Insurance at (801) 538-3855 or email the Insurance Department.

Preparation for this exam is you’ll want to focus on, since the average pass rate of insurance exams nationwide is around 55% for first-time test-takers.The next step after completing all your coursework is to take and pass the Utah Insurance Adjuster License exams. Depending on the lines of authority you wish to carry, you may need to take more than one exam. Once you have completed all your coursework and passed the examination, you are now ready to apply for your license. The State of Utah 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 Utah Insurance Department at (801) 538-3855 or send them an email. 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 about five to ten (5-10) business days. Depending on the results of your background check, the Department of Insurance may request more information or documentation.

In Utah, insurance licenses expire every two (2) years. The expiration will be on the last day of your birth month (e.g. if you are born in June, your license(s) will expire on June 30th). The State of Utah requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two-year renewal period. Three (3) of those hours must be on the subject of ethics. At least twelve (12) hours of the courses must be completed in a classroom or an equivalent course type.  Required continuing education (CE) must be completed prior to license renewal.

After you have completed your continuing education and you are within 90 days of your license expiration, you may renew your Utah insurance license online by using the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR). Renewals in Utah may only be submitted online. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

After one (1) year past the license expiration date, non-resident applicants must reinstate through the Non-Resident License (NRL) Application.

There is a fee of $75 to renew your license in Utah. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

Utah grants non-resident licenses to adjusters holding an adjusters license in their home state on a reciprocal basis. If your home state does not issue Adjuster licenses, the Utah Insurance Department will issue you a license if you either pass the Utah exam or already hold a non-resident license in another state. Non-residents whose home state does not license adjusters must either pass an exam or already hold a non-resident adjusters license in another state.

A non-resident adjuster who is CE compliant in his or her home state is considered to have satisfied the CE requirement for Utah.

There is an $75 fee to renew your non-resident adjuster license. Your Utah adjuster license can be renewed online through an application on NIPR’s website.

For more information, contact the Utah Insurance Department.
