How do I apply for a car insurance license?

I live in Pennsylvania and I want to get my car insurance license. How would I apply for one?

Answer
Becoming a car insurance agent is a great career move. Requirements will vary depending on where you live, but most include a prelicensing course and an exam.
To get an insurance license in Pennsylvania, you need to:
  • Take 24 hours of prelicensing education
  • Take and pass the licensing exam
  • Apply for your license
  • Get fingerprinted
Once the state approves your license, you can begin your new career as an insurance agent. Since you want to switch careers, consider looking for a job now. Some car insurance companies pay for you to get licensed. You can search job listings and find companies that offer training and pay for you to earn a license.
In the spirit of becoming a car insurance agent, make sure you also have a great car insurance policy.
