The Texas Department of Insurance will return to normal processing for temporary agent licenses beginning on Aug. 15.
Anyone with a temporary license issued August 15 or earlier will have until Nov. 13 to get a regular license.
Those with temporary licenses issued on or after August 15 will have 90 days to get a regular license.
If the temporary license expires, the agent will no longer be able to act under the authority of the license.
Anyone applying for a temporary license will need to pay the $150 fee and submit fingerprints with the application.
TDI will continue to waive the following requirements:
- The requirement that temporary agent licensees get training in a classroom setting is waived. Instead, applicants seeking a temporary license may take approved webinars and courses listed as “classroom equivalent” to satisfy the 10 hours of classroom training.
- The requirement that, during any two consecutive quarters, at least 70% of an organization’s applicants for temporary licenses take the required licensing examination is waived.
