Licensing/Renewal Information

Apply for/Print License Online

The Agents Licensing Section processes applications for licensure in date received order. Please allow a minimum of 15 business days for processing before contacting the Bureau concerning the status of an application. The Bureau of Insurance does not print or mail licenses. For applications submitted through Sircon, the license printing service is free for up to 30 days after the application has been approved. For applications submitted through NIPR, a Sircon service fee will be applied to print the license.

The Bureau encourages resident applicants to first obtain their Virginia State Police criminal history record report (CHRR) and related documents before submitting the electronic application. Applicants using Sircon's Compliance Express (CX) should upload all attachments including the CHRR and submit them with the electronic application.
