Fingerprinting - Exam & Licensing Procedures
The Utah Insurance Department requires all individuals applying for a resident insurance license to be fingerprinted. Fingerprinting must be done at a Prometric test center, using "live scan" technology, which digitally captures and transmits the fingerprints to the Utah Department of Public Safety, Bureau of Criminal Identification (BCI) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for a criminal history background check. Fingerprinting is not required for resident licensees adding a line of authority to an existing license.
For license types that require passing an examination (IE: Resident Consultant, Resident Producer, Resident Independent Adjuster, Resident Public Adjuster), the process is as follows:
- The applicant will register by going online at Prometric or by calling 800-697-8947 to schedule an appointment for the license examination and fingerprinting to be done at a Prometric test center. In addition to the Prometric examination fees, there is a $20 Prometric fingerprint processing fee. The applicant must schedule the appointment and pay the Prometric examination and processing fees before arriving at the test center.
- After passing the examination, the candidate will apply on-line using a kiosk located at the Prometric test center. The license application will include a $36.50 FBI/BCI fingerprint fee* ($16.50 FBI/$20.00 BCI) that must be made by credit card during the online application process. Upon completing the on-line application, the applicant must print the SIRCON or NIPR confirmation page and show it to the test center supervisor as proof they have paid the FBI/BCI fingerprint fees.
- After applying for a license on-line, the applicant will have their fingerprints taken at the Prometric test center.
- Fingerprint results will be returned to the Utah Insurance Department. The department will evaluate the results and the license application prior to issuing any license.
Candidates may no longer submit a license application for pre-screening purposes prior to taking the examination. All license applications are to be submitted after successfully passing any required examinations.
Note: Passing an exam and submitting an application does not guarantee that you will be issued a license. Issuance of a license depends on review and approval of all license application materials, including application questions regarding any prior civil or criminal proceedings. Read the application carefully. Failure to disclose civil proceedings and all criminal convictions, whether a misdemeanor or felony, and any pending charges, may result in denial of your application or revocation of your license after issuance. If your license application is denied, you will be notified in writing of the reason for such denial.
After passing the exam, complete and submit your license application electronically, and pay all required nonrefundable fees with a credit card. You can apply electronically from your home or office at Sircon or NIPR. Your application and fees will be electronically forwarded to the Department. After review and approval, you will be able to print your license from Sircon. You will need the license number and last 4 digits of your social security number.
The Department no longer accepts paper applications. Paper applications submitted to the Department may be returned to the applicant, without being processed.
Company appointments do not need to accompany the individual license application and license fee, but the applicant cannot act as a producer until the appointment process is complete.

Examinations are administered by Prometric. When an individual completes an exam registration form, either online or over the phone and pays the exam fee to Prometric, Prometric will send written notice to the candidate of where the exam may be taken and how to schedule the exam appointment. The easiest way to register for the exam is online at Prometric. You may also call Prometric at 1-800-697-8947. If a candidate fails an exam, they must re-register and pay the fee to Prometric again.
Candidates may no longer submit a license application for pre-screening purposes prior to taking the examination. We do not review criminal history prior to application. All license applications are to be submitted after successfully passing any required examinations.
