How to Get a Life Insurance License

Studying for a life insurance exam

The insurance industry is state regulated which means that the licensing requirements will vary by state. All states, however, require an individual to pass an entry-level insurance licensing exam. By partnering with A.D. Banker, we promise to make your journey to licensing simple and easy to understand.

Step 1: Enroll in a life insurance prelicensing course

Licensing candidates can expect this process to take a minimum of 20 hours per line of authority (life, health, etc.). Each course will provide the product and state specific information needed to pass the state exam. Since many programs are self-paced, it is important to outline your study plan so you can stay on track and pass the first time!

Step 2: Complete the life insurance prelicensing requirements for your state

Even though not all states have a prelicensing certification requirement, it is highly recommended that all license applicants complete a program of study to successfully pass the state licensing exam.

Step 3: Register for the state exam through your state’s designated exam provider.

Step 4: PASS your state exam with confidence!

Step 5: Follow your states' licensing requirements to apply for your license!
