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 Idaho Department of Insurance at (208) 334-4250 or visit them online at www.doi.idaho.gov. After passing the examination, candidates must apply for their license within 180 days. After 180 days, the department will require the candidate to take their licensing exams again.

IF I DON'T PASS IS THERE ANY WAITING PERIOD THAT APPLIES BEFORE I CAN RETAKE THE IDAHO 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 that part of the exam which they failed. Candidates have 180 days to pass both parts of the examination after they have initially passed one part. Examination results are valid for 180 days from the date of examination.
