How to Renew Your Insurance License in Texas


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Texas

Individual producer licenses in Texas are renewed ever two (2) years. Your license will expire on your date of birth biennially based on the anniversary of your original license date. Your first license period will be between thirteen and twenty-four (13-24) months.

Example: If you were first licensed in December 2016, and your birthday is on May 13th, then your license will expire on May 13th, 2018.

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 per line.

After completing all of CE, you may renew your license on the Texas Insurance Licensing Search and Renewal tool.

The state of Texas requires that resident individual licensees complete twenty-four (24) credit hours of continuing education every four year renewal period. Of those hours, two (2) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics.  At least 50% of your CE hours must be in a classroom or classroom equivalent.

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.

You may look up your education transcript with the Continuing Education Transcript Inquiry Tool on Sircon's website.
