outlined in the Insurance
Licensing Candidate Handbook
published by Pearson VUE, examination administrator for the Bureau of Insurance. Candidates may register for examinations at www.pearsonvue.com/va/insurance
or via telephone at 888-204-6272.
Before applying for the license, the candidate must pass the appropriate examination and obtain a current (no more than 90 days old) Criminal History Record Report (“CHRR”) through the Virginia State Police (“VSP”). Visit www.vsp.state.va.us/ to download Form SP-167. When completing the form, have the report mailed back to the candidate, not to the Bureau. For expedited service, the candidate may also request a VSP CHRR for an additional fee through the following insurance industry associations: Independent Insurance Agents of Virginia, Inc. (www.iiav.com) or National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (www.NAIFA-Virginia.org).
Visit www.sircon.com/virginia to apply online for the insurance producer’s license. The Virginia CHRR with all related documents should be attached to the application. The Bureau processes applications for licensure in date received order. Allow 15 business days for processing. An application is closed after 30 calendar days if all of the required documentation is not provided. A new application and non-refundable processing fee is required. Visit www.scc.virginia.gov.ConsumerInquiry to track a pending application or to view the license status.
The Bureau 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. Your Virginia License Number (“VLN”) is required to print the license. You may find your license number/NPN and print your license at www.sircon.com/virginia.
