FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I APPLY FOR MY LICENSE?

For questions regarding how to obtain a license after the examination has been passed, candidates should contact the State of Alaska Division of Insurance at (907)465-2515 or visit them online at www.commerce.state.ak.us/insurance. After passing the examination, candidates must apply for their license within one year. After one year, the Division will require the candidate to take and pass their licensing exams again.

IF I DON'T PASS IS THERE ANY WAITING PERIOD THAT APPLIES BEFORE I CAN RETAKE THE ALASKA INSURANCE EXAM?

This computerized exam is scored immediately upon completion of parts I and II of the exam. If a candidate fails either part, they must pay a reexamination fee and retake only the part of the exam which they failed. Examination results are valid for one year from the date of examination.
