How To Renew Your Insurance License In North Carolina
Individual producer licenses in North Carolina are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of the month of your license anniversary biennially based on your year of birth.
If you were born on an even year, then your license will expire on even years. Vice versa with odd years. This means that your first license period may be longer than two years.
To renew your license, you must complete all continuing education (CE) requirements listed below prior to starting the renewal process.
There is an $84 fee for license renewal.
North Carolina Continuing Education Requirements
The state of North Carolina 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 hold a Property License, you must also complete a three (3) hour course on Flood. 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.
