How to Get an Wisconsin Insurance License

Do You Qualify for an Insurance License?

See the Following Prerequisites:

  • Be at least 18 years of age or older
  • Have a high school diploma or its equivalent (GED)
  • Possess a Social Security number

1. Complete a Pre-licensing Course

If you would like to sell insurance in Wisconsin, you must complete an approved line of pre-licensing education and pass the state licensing exam. All courses are cross-referenced with the exam content outline.

To satisfy the requirements for your course, you will need to pass a Certification Exam.  The Certification Exam must be monitored by a disinterested third party (someone who is not a friend, family member, or financial connection to you).  After passing the Certification Exam with a 70% or greater, you will receive a Certificate of Completion and your hours will be reported  to the state. Pre-licensing education is valid for one year from the date of completion; you will need to take and pass your state exam within this timeframe.
