Request an Agency License

All insurance agencies seeking to do business in Georgia must be licensed

An agency is defined as a business entity that represents one or more insurers and is engaged in the business of selling, soliciting, or negotiating insurance. Agency also means a business entity insurance producer.

Electronic applications are the preferred method of submission for Georgia branch agency license applications. Electronic applications contain fewer errors and are processed must faster. 95% of branch applications can be submitted online without issue. There are a small number of entities who will need to submit a paper application due to unique licensing situations. For example, entities with multiple resident licenses may encounter an issue due to difficulties determining which resident license the principal branch location is associated with. For this limited population, please contact Pearson VUE at 800-274-8969.

Agency licenses must be renewed every two years. To renew an existing agency license, visit the renewals page.
