Fingerprinting - Exam & Licensing Procedures
The Utah Insurance Department requires all individuals applying for a resident insurance license to be fingerprinted. Fingerprinting must be done at a PSI test center, using "live scan" technology, which digitally captures and transmits the fingerprints to the Utah Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for a criminal history background check. Fingerprinting is not required for resident licensees adding a line of authority to an existing license.
For license types that require passing an examination (IE: Resident Consultant, Resident Producer, Resident Independent Adjuster, Resident Public Adjuster), the process is as follows:
- The applicant will register by going online at PSI Exams or by calling 1-800-733-9267 to schedule an appointment for the license examination and fingerprinting to be done at a PSI test center. In addition to the PSI examination fees, there is a $20 PSI fingerprint processing fee. The applicant must schedule the appointment and pay the PSI examination and processing fees before arriving at the test center.
- After passing the examination, the candidate will apply on-line using a kiosk located at the PSI test center. Upon completing the on-line application, the applicant must print the SIRCON or NIPR confirmation page and show it to the test center supervisor as proof they have paid the FBI/BCI fingerprint fees.
- After applying for a license on-line, the applicant will have their fingerprints taken at the Prometric test center.
- Fingerprint results will be returned to the Utah Insurance Department. The department will evaluate the results and the license application prior to issuing any license.
Candidates may no longer submit a license application for pre-screening purposes prior to taking the examination. All license applications are to be submitted after successfully passing any required examinations.
Note: Passing an exam and submitting an application does not guarantee that you will be issued a license. Issuance of a license depends on review and approval of all license application materials, including application questions regarding any prior civil or criminal proceedings. Failure to disclose civil proceedings and all criminal convictions, whether a misdemeanor or felony, and any pending charges, may result in denial of your application or revocation of your license after issuance. If your license application is denied, you will be notified in writing of the reason for such denial.
After passing the exam, complete and submit your license application electronically, and pay all required nonrefundable fees with a credit card. You can apply electronically from your home or office at Sircon or NIPR. Your application and fees will be electronically forwarded to the Department. After review and approval, you will be able to print your license from Sircon. You will need the license number and last 4 digits of your social security number.
The Department no longer accepts paper applications. Paper applications submitted to the Department may be returned to the applicant, without being processed.
Company appointments do not need to accompany the individual license application and license fee, but the applicant cannot act as a producer until the appointment process is complete.
