Kansas Insurance Licensing RequirementsThings to Know for Kansas Insurance Students
Unlike many other states, students seeking to become licensed in Kansas are not required to provide proof of having passed a Kansas insurance licensing course before taking the licensing examination. However, it is strongly recommended that students new to insurance, or even in need of a brief refresher, consider taking a licensing course before sitting for the examination.
Aside from passing the agent licensing examination, the only requirement from the Kansas Insurance Commissioner is that agents be of 18 years of age and submit the NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) Uniform Application for Individual Insurance Producer License. This can be done online, or forms can be obtained at the Kansas Insurance Commissioner's website and mailed to the Producers Division at -

Topeka, KS 66612
After becomming licensed, agents are required to renew their license every two years, with a mandatory 12 hours of insurance continuing education. Life/Health require 12 CE credit hours, and Property/Casualty require 12 CE credit hours (individual lines also require twelve hours, not 6 hours).
Continuing education credits must be taken during the two year period to which they will be applied. However, they can be taken at any time during that two year period.
