The Florida Department of Financial Services limits individuals to 5 exam attempts for the same exam type during a 12 month period. Individuals who have reached the 5 exam limit are not permitted to sit for their next exam attempt until the 12 month time window only contains 4 exams. The certificate that you will receive from the testing administrator upon passing the state exam is valid for 12 months.
You must schedule an appointment to submit electronic fingerprints to complete a background check. The Florida Department of Financial Services requires fingerprints to ensure that an applicant does not have a disqualifying criminal or social services background that would prevent them from being a licensed insurance agent.
Electronic Fingerprints Fee: $50.75 plus local Florida county sales tax
Fingerprints are valid for 1 year for applicants who do not currently hold a valid Florida insurance license. For an applicant presently licensed and seeking an additional license, and the individual has been fingerprinted through us within the last 4 years, that applicant will only be required to submit fingerprints again if specifically requested by the Department.
