Step 2. Get Your License

 

Above is an expectations chart for completing the online course to receive your insurance license.  Statistics show that the faster you complete the course, the higher your chance of you passing the exam.  It’s in your best interest to complete the course within 5 days.  Plan to spend an average of 4 hours per day for 5 days. We recommend scheduling your state exam right away.  Why?  Because that will give you a timeline of when you have to complete your course.  For example, if you schedule your exam in one week from now. you will complete the course within 5-7 days.   All states require a background check for insurance licensing. The timeline and procedure for each state are specific and can vary greatly. See your state information below to establish how to get the background check started immediately as well as any other state-specific requirements.
