How To Renew Your Insurance License In Nevada
In Nevada, insurance licenses expire every three years. Your license renewal date is the first of the month that follows that date you were issued the license, triennially. This means that if you were licensed in April, your license must be renewed by May 1 three years later.
There is no requirement to take another exam from the state, though depending on the format of your continuing education, it is possible that you may take a short knowledge test at the end of the course to be sure that you understand important insurance concepts, laws, and regulations.
If this is the state you reside in, then renewing your license will also keep any non-resident license you have in good standing. You will still need to pay the license renewal fee for non-resident licenses held in other states.
Step 1. Nevada Insurance Continuing Education Requirements
The State of Nevada requires that most resident individual licensees complete thirty (30) credit hours of continuing education every three-year renewal period. Three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics. In most cases, you can take only the courses that are approved for the line of authority you hold.
Note: It is recommended to complete all continuing education credits thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date of the license. This will give the CE provider time to report the successful completion to the department of insurance. Your CE courses can be taken any time within your license term
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 a 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.
Step 2. Renew Your Insurance License In Nevada
After you have completed your continuing education and you are within 90 days of your license expiration, you may renew your Nevada insurance license online by using the Nevada State Information Center Insurance Licensing Search and Renewal tool.
There is a fee of $185 per application to renew your license.
Once this process is complete, your license will be renewed and your new expiration date will be three years from your previous expiration date.
