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 Kansas Insurance Department at (785)296-7862 or visit them online at www.ksinsurance.org. After passing the examination, candidates must apply for their license within one year. After one year, the Department 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 INSURANCE EXAM?

This computerized exam is scored immediately upon completion of parts I and II of the exam. If a candidate fails the exam, they must pay a reexamination fee and wait at least 24 hours before scheduling a reexamination. After failing the exam the first or second time, candidates must wait at least seven calendar days between attempts to sit for the exam. After the third and subsequent attempts, candidates must wait six months. Examination results are valid one year from the date of examination.
