You would have to get non-resident licenses(P+C, L+H) for each state.Source(s):Insurance Agent

Go to each state's website, most will let you apply for a non-resident license on-line. You will complete an application and pay a license fee to get the non-resident license. Then you will need to get appointed by a company authorized to do business in that state. It is a pretty easy process once you have your resident license.

You have to contact each States insurance department and get applications for a non-residence license.They check with your State as to your Status and will charge a non-resident fee.You do not have to take any extra examinations to receive a non-resident license...just be in good standing with your home state.Source(s):Agent 37 years

Simple, go to the NIPR website and apply for as many states that accept reciprocity with your resident state. For those that don't, apply direct by using the NIPR site for guidance on how to apply to each state. This is a great site that I use...I am licensed in about 15 states. You pay a service fee, but well worth it and the non-resident license get's issued quickly.Source(s):www.licenseregistry.com

Go to each state's insurance department website, and follow the instructions for "nonresident licensing". Most states are reciprocal - if you send a letter in good standing from your home state, your latest CE, and the money, they'll mail you a non-resident's license. For non-reciprocal states, they'll require you to take their state test - which MUST be done in person, at an authorized testing location.It's much HARDER to find markets that will let you sell their insurance, as a nonresident, in the other 49 states. So before you go all gung ho getting the licenses, I'd try to line up some markets FIRST. Most of them will make you broker through a resident agent, and get a countersignature - then the resident agent keeps from 50% to 100% (some states won't allow the passing of commission) of the commission. So it costs you time, money, and hassle, and you don't make very much.Source(s):agent, 21+ years

There is no national licensing program, to date.You will ahve to apply to each state individually and most (if not all) do require licensing to be an practicing agent.You will need a residence license in home state and obviously a nonresidency license in the other 49 states.States have difference requirements.Some states will require exams.Some states have reciprocal agreements with others and will license a person if they hold a current license in another state.Bonding requirements are sometimes different per state.Personally, I know of no other person who is a licensed agent or adjuster in every state.
