How do you sell car insurance policies?

I love cars, and I am thinking I want to go into car insurance. What's required?

Being an auto insurance broker can be a great career choice that is rewarding and financially stable! Each state has different requirements for getting your insurance broker license, so check out your state’s Department of Insurance website for the details.
To become a car insurance broker, you must:
  • Have a clean background and no criminal record
  • Prepare for and pass the state licensing exam
  • Send your credentials to your state
There are many career paths available in insurance. In most cases, you can get started at a large call center or a smaller agency. The benefit of a call center with a big-name agency is that they pay for training and required state licensing.
The benefit of going with a smaller, independent agency is the slower pace and strong relationships you get to build directly with your customers.
You will want to make sure you’re familiar with various types of insurance, and a great way to do this is by studying your own car insurance.
