Having a public-facing office is a must

Non-citizens must submit a copy of their work authorization or green card.

The exam costs $50 for each attempt. To register and schedule the test, you must first establish an account with the Kentucky Department of Insurance eServices.

The insurance license exams are designed to be tough, but not impossible. Before taking the exam, you should research until you feel confident with the information. It's not the end of the world if you fail the exam, just bear in mind that you will have to pay the fee each time you take the test.

Your license application will be reviewed by the state after you have submitted it and met all of the other specifications. This procedure takes three to five (3-5) business days on average. The Department of Insurance can request additional information or documents based on the results of your background check.

Background check

Applicants must undergo a background check via the Kentucky CourtNet System after completing the state adjuster test. In most cases, online requests are handled within one or two business days.

You should review your Online Gateway Account to see if your Kentucky Adjuster License has been released. Also, after obtaining an adjuster license, you can make an adjuster license lookup on the License Search website.

Surety bond

You must obtain and apply a $1,000 surety bond signed by the principal and executed by a Kentucky admitted surety.

Although the bond is not legally a move required by the Kentucky Insurance Adjuster License, it is required before you can perform any adjuster business.

Adjuster license renewal

Once you have obtained your license, you will need to take a few more measures to keep it active every few years. Every two years, resident Kentucky adjusters must complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE). At least 3 hours of ethics must be included in the 24 hours. CE must be completed by the last day of your birth month, regardless of whether you were born in an odd or even year.
