Apply for Your License
To apply for your resident or non-resident individual insurance license, use the specific instructions outlined by license type using the menu on the left. Read the instruction carefully and collect all of the required information before starting the process to apply.
Many of these license types will require the applicant to submit an electronic application using one of the third party vendor services of NIPR or SIRCON.
NIPR (National Insurance Producer Registry) is an electronic gateway developed to link state insurance departments with the insurance companies, which they regulate. The goal is to simplify communications and to distribute information electronically, including licensing applications, appointments and terminations. The NIPR Gateway was designed to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the state licensing process among all parties through automation, standardization and reciprocity.
SIRCON® (State Insurance Regulators Connection) provides a powerful, yet easy to administer, e-licensing and appointment interface for insurance companies to perform online transactions and inquiries with state insurance regulatory agencies. SIRCON eliminates the traditionally slow, inefficient and paper-based method of interacting with state regulatory databases and replaces it with a browser-based method that requires no expensive investment in software.

You may only renew your license during the renewal period. The license term is April 1 to March 31 of odd years. The department will send out renewal notices for existing licensees at the beginning of the odd year. Note: license fees are not prorated and the license term is fixed, regardless of time of application.
Resident and Non-Resident Adjuster/Individual type licenses expire on March 31 and include P/C Adjuster, Workers Compensation Adjuster, Appraiser, Public Adjuster, Consultant, Reinsurance Intermediary, Surplus Lines Broker, and Life Settlement Broker.
Please use the following criteria below to find your license renewal. Licensees who renew using SIRCON, will be able to print a license copy free of charge within 30 days of renewing their license. Licensees who renew using NIPR, and need a copy of a printed license, there is a $5.50 charge to print the license copy from SIRCON.
- Choose renew your license;
- Enter your resident state; and

Note: DFR does not send out a renewed license. A licensee can confirm that their license has been renewed or issued, by checking their License Status. Here you can print a copy of your license information for your records at no cost. The department does not require a licensee to possess a paper copy of their license.
Paper renewals are only accepted if the electronic renewal option is not available for your license type listed above, or you have requested, and been granted a Hardship Exception to the electronic processing. At the bottom of this page you will find the NAIC Uniform Renewal/Continuation Application. Checks should be made payable to the VT Dept of Financial Regulation. All paper renewal applications must be in our office prior to March 31, 2019. For answers to additional questions, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to provide a telephone number where we can contact you.
