How to Renew Your Washington D.C. Insurance License
24 hours biennially
Compliance Renewal Date
Renewal date is the last day of the licensee’s birth month, biennially.
You may also need to take specific courses or earn specific credit types to renew your license. These course completions will count toward the total hour requirement.
Hours must be taken in lines for which license is held. A minimum of 6 hours in each line must be taken for producers holding both Life & Health and Property & Casualty licenses. No more than 50% of the requirement can be in company-sponsored courses.
For All Licenses:
3 hrs – All producers must complete 3 hours of Ethics as part of the total requirement. No more than 3 hours of Ethics can be completed in a renewal period.
An insurance producer shall not solicit the sale of an annuity product unless the insurance producer completes a one-time four (4) credit training course approved by the Department. The minimum length of the training required shall be sufficient to qualify for at least four (4) CE credits, but may be longer.
Long-Term Care Training
There currently is no LTC training requirement.
All Other State Requirements
A Producer (with the exception of limited lines producers) renewing an insurance license must successfully complete at least twenty-four (24) credit hours of approved continuing education, inclusive of at least three (3) credit hours in ethics, prior to expiration of his/her license.
In addition, a producer renewing a license in the property and casualty group shall also complete at least three (3) credit hours in flood insurance during the licensee’s first license renewal period.
A licensee shall acquire no more than one half (1⁄2) of his/her CE Credit hour requirements for a particular license with a course or courses sponsored by an Insurance Company.
Non Resident Requirements
Non-resident applicants who meet the CE requirements in their home state are exempt from District of Columbia CE.
Course repetition is not permitted within the compliance/renewal period.
Online certification exams are closed book. Course materials are not available while the exam is in progress. The final exam must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to receive CE credit. If the exam is not passed on the first attempt, students have an unlimited number of retakes.
Online exams must be monitored by a disinterested third party. A disinterested third party certifies that the licensee completed the exam without assistance (i.e., closed book, no tiling, layering of screens, etc.) and is someone who has no financial interest in the success or failure of the student’s ability to maintain their license. The monitor must complete the online Declaration of Compliance. If the licensee launches the exam without a monitor present, he/she will be disqualified from receiving CE credit for the course. Completion of the Declaration of Compliance acknowledges understanding and adherence to the specific requirements outlined by the State Department of Insurance. The Declaration of Compliance is electronically transmitted to Kaplan upon completion of the exam and may be audited for compliance purposes.
CE requirements must be completed prior to the expiration of the license in order to qualify for renewal. Licensees will renew on the last day of the producer’s birth month biennially.
Excess credit hours accumulated during a license period shall not be carried forward to the next license period.
Report within 5 days of completion. Need Agent’s license number or NPN to report.
State Reporting Fees
The DC Department of Insurance requires a course reporting fee of $1.00 per credit hour (online, self-study and classroom courses). This state reporting fee will be automatically charged to you (on the last credit card used in your account) each time you complete an online, self-study, or classroom course.
Individuals acting as instructors for continuing education courses receive the same amount of CE credit as his or her students receive for taking the class.
