New Adjuster Licensing Process

Congratulations on taking the first step to receiving your Texas adjuster license.  The steps below will help you get started on the licensing process with the Texas Department of Insurance.

  • Complete the steps for fingerprinting.
  • Apply for a license and pay the licensing fee:

Texas Residents: Apply for the license online.
Non-Resident DHS: You need to use the paper application Form FIN506 if you are designating Texas as your home state.

  • All Students: Include a copy of your pre-licensing certificate of completion as well as a copy of your receipt from fingerprinting when you submit your application.
  • Non-residents of Texas from a non-licensing state who hold no license and plan on designating Texas as their home state will need to follow the instructions above for mailing an application.
  • Non-residents of Texas from a licensing state who hold a license in their home state will be granted reciprocity in Texas if their home state also grants reciprocity to Texas adjusters. Please follow the instructions above for mailing in your application. If you have not been fingerprinted you will need to do that to obtain your Texas license
