How to Renew Your Insurance License in Michigan


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Michigan

Individual producer licenses in Michigan are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire on the first day of your birth month biennially, based on whether you were born on an even or odd year.

Example: If you were born in September 1991, and got your license in May of 2015, your expiration date is September 1st, 2017.

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

There is no fee or action you need to take to renew your license, other than finish your continuing education.


Michigan 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, Accident, & 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.
