HOW DO I GET MY LICENSE?

Step 1 (optional): Complete an optional prelicensing course that helps prepare you to take and pass your licensing exam.

Step 2: Schedule your exam with your state’s testing provider, Pearson VUE. The fastest way to schedule your exam is to do so online at Pearson VUE's Wyoming specific page. You can also schedule your exam over the phone at (866) 936-7786. Your examination fee is $113 for a combination exam and $96 for single line exam.

Step 3: Take and pass you state licensing exam. On the day of your appointment you must bring with you two valid forms of government issued identification (driver’s license, passport, military I.D., etc.) one of which must contain a photograph. You will not be able to take your exam if these requirements are not met.

When you complete your exam a score report will be provided marked “pass” or “fail.” If you pass you will receive more information on how to apply for your license at that time.

Step 4: Apply for your license online with NIPR and complete other licensing requirements such as fingerprinting. Upon receipt of your licensing application and fees, the Department will send a fingerprint packet the address specified. Applicants must make arrangements with their local law enforcement to obtain fingerprints. There may be a fee charged by law enforcement. Further directions regarding fingerprinting and background check information will be found in the packet delivered by the Department.

Step 5: Maintain your license by being aware of your continuing education requirements. Most insurance licenses must be maintained by completing a certain number of credit hours of continuing education each licensing period. ExamFX offers continuing education courses that will help you comply with your state’s requirements. Click here to view your state’s education rules and stay on top of your license.
