How To Renew Your Insurance License In Rhode Island

Individual producer licenses in Rhode Island are renewed every two (2) years. Your license will expire at the end of your birth month.

Depending on how your birthday falls compared to when you got your license, your first renewal period may be slightly shorter or longer than the standard two years.

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 $120.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license at the NIPR Rhode Island Renewal page.


The state of Rhode Island requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every four year renewal period. Of those hours, 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 & 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.
