Choose the license type
Each applicant before the licensure should determine the most important thing; what type of a license they need. All in all, the type depends on the sorts of goods and policies you’ll be selling.
NC offers several types such as Life and Health, Property and Casualty, etc. Among them, property and casualty (P&C), life and health ones are the most popular. Most insurance agents prefer to have both of them ( P&C and L&H permits), but if you want to specialize in just one category, you won’t need both of them.
A guide to North Carolina Insurance License
The first critical step for any license is applying. For NC there is a special platform called Vertafore. The website allows you to apply for licensure online. select the type of permit you wish to apply for from the selection on the left by clicking ‘Apply for a license’. To be eligible, you must be at least 18 years old, a North Carolina resident, and have passed the state-approved test.
But before you go through the application process, don’t forget you need to take a pre-licensing exam. You must register with Pearson Vue and complete the pre-licensing course. Reservations for exams can be done online or by calling (866) 265-6329. Passing the test will cost $45.00.
What about examinations?
You must take the pre-licensing exam at least 90 days beforehand. Each applicant has a maximum of 5 attempts to pass the testing. The minimum score is 70%. If you fail the exam, you should complete the whole pre-licensing course again and register for the examination.
The next step is to submit fingerprints. The NCDI requires fingerprinting to ensure that applicants do not have criminal or social services. Only once you’ve submitted your application do you get instructions from the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) on how to complete this prerequisite.
