Adjuster License

Disclosure for states that require an Adjuster licensing exam and license:

All insurance adjusters in Indiana 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 Indiana 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. 

Kaplan’s Texas P/C Adjuster licensing course and exam is ideal for an adjuster seeking an adjuster license under the DHS concept. The course contains the actual state licensing exam for the Texas P/C Adjuster license; therefore, you can satisfy your Texas prelicensing requirement AND pass the Texas P/C Adjuster state licensing exam without having to leave your home or office. Upon completing the Kaplan course and successfully passing the exam, you can remotely apply for the Texas Property/Casualty Adjuster License using the procedures found on the Texas State Requirements page. This will qualify you to adjust in both your home state and numerous other states that recognize the Texas DHS Adjuster license (CO, DC, IA, IL, KS, MA, MD, MO, NC, ND, NE, NH, NJ, OH, PA, SD, TN, VA, and WI).

 

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.
