Temporary Producer Requirements

A TEMPORARY PRODUCER is an Alabama resident who is required to be licensed under the laws of this state to sell, solicit, or negotiate insurance and who is otherwise qualified for a producer license except as to having passed the written examination for the following lines of insurance:
  • Life
  • Health
  • Property
  • Casualty
  • Personal Lines
PLEASE NOTE:

A Temporary Producer license is only valid if the temporary producer is sponsored and appointed by an insurance company. Once a Temporary Producer license is issued, the Temporary Producer may also be appointed to represent any affiliated insurer. A Temporary Producer license is a once in a lifetime license per line of authority and is valid for a maximum of 6 months from the date the license is issued, during which time the individual should be actively engaged in a prelicensing course for the line or lines of authority.

Q: If I have a temporary license and am appointed to represent one company, can I be appointed with another company?
A: A temporary producer may be appointed to represent any affiliated company within the same insurer group of companies.

Q: Does an applicant have to be fingerprinted before applying for temporary license?
A: No, only after passing exam should an applicant be fingerprinted.

Q: Can Non-residents apply for a temporary license?
A: No, only Alabama residents qualify for temporary producer licenses.

Q: If I have already taken the prelicensing course but have not yet passed the examination, can I still apply for a temporary license?
A: Yes. Passing the prelicensing course is not a requirement for a temporary license, but the fact you have already passed the course does not disqualify you.
