How to Renew Your Insurance License in Alabama


Individual producer licenses in Alabama are renewed ever two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of your birth month biennially based on the year which you first got your license. You may begin the renewal process as early as forty-five (45) days before the expiration date of your license.

Example: If you were born in May of 1984, and got your license in January of 2017, your license would expire May 30th of 2019.

To renew your license, you must complete all continuing education (CE) requirements listed below prior to starting the renewal process. You must also resubmit your proof of citizenship. Submit your proof of citizenship on the Alabama Department of Insurance website.

The fee for license renewal is $70.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license at the NIPR website.

Alabama Continuing Education Requirements

Alabama requires insurance producers to complete twenty-four (24) hours of continuing education (also known as CE) per reporting period. Three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics. If you have a producer license in more than one line of authority (ex. Property & Casualty and Life & Health), you do not need to complete double the hours.

You may take your continuing education courses either in person in a classroom setting or online as a self-paced course. The online courses usually require reading of the subject at hand, then a test at the end.

Upon completion of these courses, the company who you took the course should send the certificate of completion directly to the state. You should, however, print a copy of this certificate to keep in your records just in case there is a dispute later.

StateRequirement recommends Kaplan Education Company for all insurance CE courses.

You may look up your education transcript with this tool from State Based Systems.
