Become a Georgia Insurance Adjuster

Licensing Rules and Reciprocity for Georgia Claims Adjusters

AdjusterPro's Bottom-line: Resident adjuster applicants must take a 40 hour P&C pre-licensing course and pass an exam. Non-residents holding an adjuster license in their home state can obtain a Georgia license through reciprocity. Non-residents that live in states not licensing adjusters must pass the Georgia Adjuster Examination to qualify for licensure.


Adjuster License Requirements

To become a licensed Georgia insurance adjuster, individuals must:

Adjuster Exam Preparation

Adjuster Exam Registration

Once your 40 Hour PreLicensing Course has been completed, you may schedule your exam and location through Pearson-Vue online or by calling 1-800-274-0488.

Georgia License Application

Resident must:

NOTE: Waiver of examination can be granted if applicant holds CPCU designation. Further, the exam requirement for residents can be waived if applicant was licensed for the same lines in their prior home state. The license in that state, however, must be active at the time of moving to Georgia and the applicant must submit a letter of clearance from their home state. They must apply within 90 days of moving to Georgia. 

Non-residents must:

  • Complete the Nonresident Uniform Application for Individual Producer.
  • Submit proof of home state licensure for license type requested; proof may be in form of an Original certification letter dated within 90 days from resident state or PDB printout.
  • Application fee of $115 must be included with application.
  • If you are from a state that does not have a license requirement, you may still be licensed in Georgia, however, you must take the Georgia Adjuster Examination to qualify.

Reciprocity

Georgia grants licensing privileges to those adjusters licensed in their home state. If a state does not require a license for its adjusters you must take the Georgia Adjuster Exam.
