Step 2: Submit Your License Application to PSI
We give you the License Application in Class and share with you how to fill it out, where to send it, and when it is due. You may apply for the licensing test when you start class but may not take the test until you provide proof of your 40 Hour Course.
Step 3: Call PSI 4 Days after Your Application is Submitted to Schedule your exam
You cannot request an exam date until PSI has received your application and approved you as a candidate to take the exam. This usually takes 4-8 Days.
Step 4: When you pass the test, your license is normally issued within 1 week
When you pass the examination (we know you will!), you have completed the process. Your passing information will be electronically submitted to the Louisiana Department of Insurance and your license will be issued usually within 1 week.
