How to Renew Your Insurance License in Florida


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Florida

Individual producer licenses in Florida are perpetual licenses. The license will never expire as long as you stay compliant with the rules of licensure.

Even though your license does not expire, you must complete continuing education every two years. Your education is due on the last day of your birth month starting at least two years after your original license date.

Example: If you were born in June, and originally licensed on July 20th, 2016, your CE will be due on June 30th, 2019.

If your license goes forty-eight (48) without an appointment, it will expire.

The state of Florida requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two year renewal period. Of those hours, five (5) of those hours must be in the subject of Florida law and 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.
