Renew a License

A license must be renewed prior to its expiration date or it will expire. If your status as an agent is currently “inactive,” and has been “inactive” for more than 2 years, you will not be eligible to renew until a licensed insurance company processes an appointment on your behalf. Currently licensed Individual/TBA Producers including title insurance agents can renew their license up to 180 days prior to expiration.

  •  Entities with licenses expiring on 06/30/2019 (Life, accident and health agent/title agent) are now available to renew via the DFS Portal.
