Arkansas adheres the following application process:

  1. Arkansas will require resident applicants to complete a resident licensing application prior to taking an exam.
  2. After a resident license application is submitted via NIPR, all individual applicants must complete the background check form using the link: https://www.ark.org/background-check/index.php/home/index/aid
  3. If an exam is required, the applicant should complete the ASP background check and submit the fee to the Arkansas State Police. When the background check and application are cleared, you will receive Authorization to test from PSI, which contains important information and next steps. This may take 2-5 days.

Once Arkansas Department of Insurance receives all required information, the resident application will be processed. Please note that license applications are processed in the order received after all forms and exams (if applicable) have been received.  For questions or inquiries, email examschedule@psionline.com.

Applicant must be at least eighteen (18) years old or older as determined from the applicant's date of birth.

Canadian citizens cannot apply for a resident license electronically.

Applicant must provide a valid business email address.

Applicants licensed in another state and moving to Arkansas, should contact the Arkansas Insurance Department Licensing Division at Insurance.License@arkansas.gov for more information.

Before a license with the variable line of authority (LOA) will be issued, the applicant must provide Arkansas Department of Insurance proof of Series 6 and Series 7.

  • A consultant applicant must hold an active insurance producer license in Arkansas on PDB.
  • An exam is required for reapplication if license classes require an exam on the initial application.
