Updates



We are now offering remote testing through PSI, our exam vendor. Remote testing can be scheduled with PSI at home.psiexam.com.

Effective September 15, 2020, the Department will no longer issue temporary producer licenses. 


All resident producers will still need to meet the 24 hours of CE and renewal application requirements to maintain an active license.


  • Effective July 8, 2019, you will log on to SBS' website to view your CE transcript and South Carolina license information. As a reminder to resident producers, fingerprinting is not required at every renewal. If a resident producer was fingerprinted at initial licensure or for their last compliance period, fingerprinting is not required at every renewal. If a resident producer was fingerprinted at initial licensure or for their last compliance period, fingerprinting is not required a second time as long as the license remains active.


Going forward, new and renewal applications, as well as most other licensing processes, will be submitted through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).  You will also have the ability to view/print/manage your license through SBS.  Paper applications and checks are currently only processed in limited, special circumstances.  Effective January 1, 2019, all paper applications and checks will be returned to the applicant without being processed.
