Virginia Continuing Education Exemptions

Producers with less than 1 year of licensure at the time of renewal, limited lines producers, and nonresident agents are exempt from Virginia insurance continuing education requirements. Extenuating circumstances will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

Producers at least 65 years old with 20 years of continual licensure are exempt from additional insurance continuing education.
