Cancel the license in the previous home state. After the license is canceled, submit an application online to NIPR (www.nipr.com) along with the license fee. A letter of clearance from the home state is not required if South Carolina can verify on the State Producer Licensing Database (SPLD) that the license has been canceled in the previous home state. To exempt the state licensing examination the producer must submit an application within 90 days of canceling the license in the previous home state. If the license in the previous home state has been canceled for more than 90 days, in accordance with South Carolina law the individual is required to take South Carolina’s licensing examination. All applicants for a resident producer license are now required to be fingerprinted.
