Delaware Insurance Licensing State Requirements
Delaware Insurance Department
Effective 4/6/2020: Due to Pearson Vue closures with the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the Department will offer temporary licenses for all license types. Before issuance, the applicant must sign a Consent Order stating that they have 90 days from the date that Pearson Vue is back in operation to complete their exam. The applicant is also required to provide background checks and a Letter of Responsibility from an individual actively licensed in the state of Delaware. If there is a statewide shutdown that prevents applicants from obtaining background checks, the Producer Licensing section will no longer issue any temporary licenses. Questions regarding this process should be directed to DOI_Licensing@delaware.gov.
How to Get Your Delaware Insurance License
1. Complete an Insurance Exam Prep Course
All insurance adjusters in Delaware are required to be licensed. Because of its industry recognition and credibility, earning the Texas DHS Adjuster license is accepted as authorization to adjust in Delaware and other states that recognize it.
The Texas P/C Adjuster license is highly respected in the industry and is available to individuals who want to designate Texas as their home state. This means you can qualify for the Texas P/C adjuster license just as a Texas resident adjuster would and complete the Texas bi-annual continuing education requirement.
Check with the Department of Insurance in your resident state and the states you wish to adjust to see how the Texas PC Adjuster license can be used in those states.

How is the exam scored?
- The passing score of an examination is set by the State of Delaware Department of Insurance in conjunction with Pearson VUE. Raw scores are converted into scaled scores that can range from 0 to 100. The scaled score that is reported is neither the number of questions answered correctly nor the percentage of questions answered correctly. Any score below the minimum required passing score indicates how close the candidate came to passing, rather than the actual number or percentage of questions the candidate answered correctly. Some exams require a scaled score of 70 to pass and others require a scaled score of 80 to pass. The passing score will be listed on your score report.
- When candidates complete the examination, they will receive a score report marked “pass” or “fail.” Candidates who pass the examination will receive a score report that includes information on how to apply for a license. Candidates who fail the examination will receive a score report that includes a diagnostic score report. The Producer examinations consist of two portions: content and statutes and regulations. Major Line Producer candidates are required to retake only the portion of the examination they failed. However, a candidate must pass the failed portion within one (1) year of passing the first portion in order to pass the entire examination. If the candidate does not pass both portions within one (1) year, he/she must retake the entire examination
- Reservations for reexamination cannot be made at the test center, and candidates must wait twenty-four (24) hours before rescheduling.
