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 Wyoming 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. The Property and Casualty lines are combined into one exam. The same is true for the Life and Accident, Health, Sickness, and Disability lines.

After you have completed your exams, the next step is to apply for your license. If you have more than one line of authority that you have taken the education for, be sure to apply for all of those lines. Wyoming 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 passed your exams, your license application will be reviewed by the state. Your background check will also be reviewed.

Your first step is to pass the Wyoming 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 your pre-licensing requirement and examination, the next step is applying for your license. The State of Wyoming requires that all insurance license applications provide fingerprints prior to licensing. Giving your fingerprints will initiate a background check. (If you have specific questions regarding things that may come up on your background check you may call the Wyoming Insurance Department at (307) 777-7319 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 two to three (2-3) weeks. Depending on the results of your background check, the Department of Insurance may request more information or documentation.

In the state of Wyoming, insurance licenses expire every two years. The expiration will be on the last day of your birth month, biennially (e.g. if you are born on May 5th, your license expires on May 31st). There is no requirement to take another exam if you are seeking to renew your resident licensure, though depending on the format of your continuing education, it is possible that you may take a short knowledge test. All renewal invoices will be emailed approximately 90 days prior to the license expiration date.

The State of Wyoming requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two-year licensing period. Three (3) of those hours must be on the subject of ethics. Credits cannot include the same course taken repeatedly in one reporting period.

After you have completed you may renew your Wyoming insurance license online by using the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR). AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

There is a fee of $100 to renew your license. There is an additional continuing education filing fee of $30.

Non-resident producers are exempt from Wyoming’s required continuing education. However, non-resident adjusters must meet their home state requirement. If there is no home state requirement, adjusters must complete 24 hours biennially including 3 hours of ethics.

New/Renewal Applications may be submitted electronically through NIPR. AgentSync can also help with the renewal process.

In Wyoming, there is a two-year Non-Resident Adjuster license that expires on the last day of the licensee’s birth month.

Wyoming grants reciprocity with most other states licenses, provided the applicant is licensed in his or her state of residence. For those who hold DHS licenses in particular, the designated home state must require non-resident adjusters to:
Successfully complete an adjuster examination
Submit background report or fingerprints
Complete twenty-four (24) hours of continuing education during each licensing period.

Please note that the following States are currently accepted as Designated Home States; Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky-Independent Adjuster Only, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Indiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.

Non-resident Applicants licensed in their home state must pay a $150 Adjuster License Fee; this can be done digitally via the NIPR.

For more information, contact the Wyoming Insurance Department.

Once you have your license, you’ll need to complete some additional steps every two (2) years to keep it active (note the expiration date is the last day of your birth month). Resident Wyoming adjusters are required to complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years. The 24 hours must include: three (3) hours of ethics coursework.

There is an $100 fee to renew your Wyoming adjuster license. You can renew your license through either NIPR.
