  • A candidate must wait 24 hours before rescheduling an exam and is prohibited from choosing a test date within the two-week period from the date of their failed exam.
  • A candidate who fails the examination three (3) times and had taken a pre-licensing course through an online provider will be required to retake an in-classroom pre-licensing course before retaking the exam.

Step 3

Submit Electronic Fingerprints

You must schedule an appointment to submit electronic fingerprints to complete a background check. Fingerprints are required by the Georgia Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner to ensure that applicants do not have a disqualifying criminal or social services background that would prevent them from being a licensed insurance agent.

Resident candidates taking an insurance exam for the first time must be fingerprinted. If you already hold an active insurance license with the Georgia Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner, you are not required to submit a new set of fingerprints.

Expected cost

Electronic Fingerprints Fee: $48.25 plus tax

Important

  • A unique Transaction Control Number (TCN) will be provided to you upon completing your electronic fingerprints. Retain this number, as you will need it when you submit your insurance license application in the next step.
  • Electronic fingerprints are valid for 30 days from the date that are submitted.
