Oregon’s Division of Insurance announced it is changing the order of the resident license application process to streamline the process so that producer applicants take required exams before submitting an application to the division.
Currently, resident applicants schedule and take a licensing exam only after they submit the application, fingerprint card, and background check request form to the division, the DOI explained. The division reviews and approves the application, and then notifies the applicant and the exam vendor that the applicant is approved to take the exam.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2011, resident applicants will first schedule an appointment with the exam vendor to take the exam. Once they pass the exam, applicants will be able to submit fingerprints and apply for a license directly from the testing facility.
Any application materials received after Dec. 31, 2010, that do not have passing exam scores will not be processed.
