How to Renew Your Insurance License in Virginia


How To Renew Your Insurance License In Virginia

Individual producer licenses in Virginia are technically perpetual licenses, but you will need to complete all of your continuing education requirements, and pay a $20 continuance fee.

These requirements must be filled by December 31st of each even numbered year. If your first license period starts in an even year, then your first continuance requirement is in the next even year.

To continue your license, you must complete all continuing education (CE) requirements listed below prior to paying the continuance fee.

After completing all of CE, you may pay your continuance fee at the Sircon Virginia Continuance website.

The state of Virginia requires that resident individual licensees complete sixteen (16) credit hours if you hold one license type, and twenty-four (24) credit hours if you hold more than one license type, of continuing education every two year continuance period. Of those hours, three (3) of those hours must be in the subject of ethics.

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 Sircon Education Transcript Search Tool.
