Texas Returning to Normal Temporary Agent License Process on Aug. 15

June 16, 2020

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.
