How to Renew Your Insurance License in Louisiana


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Louisiana

Individual producer licenses in Louisiana expire biennially (every two years) on the last day of your birth month. Property and casualty licenses expire on odd numbered years, and Life, Health & Accident licenses expire on even numbered years.

Depending on where your birthday falls, and what type of license you will carry, your initial renewal period may vary.

To renew your license, you must complete all continuing education (CE) requirements listed below prior to starting the renewal process.

The fee for license renewal is $50.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license on the NIPR Louisiana Insurance Renewal page.

The state of Louisiana requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every two year renewal period. Of those hours, three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics.

Note: You do not need to complete and CE credits on your first renewal period, but you do still need to renew the license and pay the fee.

If you have a producer license in more than one line of authority (ex. Property & Casualty and Life & Disability), 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.
