Adjuster Licensing Requirements
The Designated Home State (DHS) adjuster license is available to individuals who are 1) residents of a state that does not license adjusters, or 2) to individuals that are company adjusters and reside in a state that only licenses independent adjusters and wants to designate another state as their home state.
The states that qualify under #1 and #2 above are CO, DC, IA, IL, KS, MA, MD, MO, ND, NE, NJ, OH, PA, SD, TN, VA, and WA.
How to get an All-Lines Adjuster Designated Home State license in Florida
Under the Designated Home State concept, many adjusters obtain the Florida 70-20 Non-Resident Designated Home State Adjuster license to become an All-Lines Adjuster in Florida. To qualify for the license, the adjuster must obtain a Florida-approved adjuster designation or pass the Florida All-Lines Adjuster state examination, and complete Florida’s biennial continuing education requirement.
Obtaining the 70-20 license allows company and independent adjusters residing in the states above to adjust claims in Florida, all states that have adjuster reciprocity with Florida, and states that accept the Florida DHS Adjuster license.
The Certified All-Lines Adjuster (CALA) designation is offered by Kaplan pursuant to the authority of Florida Statute §626.221 and with the approval of the Florida Department of Financial Services (DFS). Completion of the CALA designation course allows a prospective licensee to receive their Florida 70-20 license without taking the Florida state licensing exam.
How to get an All-Lines Adjuster Designated Home State license in Texas
Some adjusters elect to designate Texas as their Designated Home State and obtain the Texas Designated Home State (DHS) Adjuster license.
Kaplan’s online Property/Casualty Adjuster licensing course contains the actual state licensing exam for the Texas DHS Adjuster license. Therefore, the licensing candidate can satisfy their Texas adjuster prelicensing requirement and pass the Texas P/C Adjuster state licensing exam online through Kaplan without leaving their home or office. Upon completing the Kaplan course and successfully passing the course exam, the adjuster can remotely apply for their Texas P/C Adjuster license using the procedures found on the Texas State Requirements page. This will qualify them to adjust in both their home state and all states that accept the Texas DHS Adjuster license.

After completing my exam prep, how should I prepare for exam day?
You should arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled exam appointment. This allows time for you to sign in, have your photo taken, and for staff to verify your identification. Identification is required. You must present a valid form of identification before you can test. The identification document must:
