Legislators Introduce Bill To Change Adjuster Licensing In Florida
LEGISLATORS INTRODUCE BILL TO CHANGE ADJUSTER LICENSING IN FLORIDA NEW PROPOSED LAW TO REQUIRE ADJUSTERS TO TAKE THE STATE TEST Currently, adjuster candidates who obtain an approved designation are exempt from taking the state licensing test. 

On February 24, 2015 two bills were introduced into the FL Legislature. SB 1222 by Senator Richter, and HB 1133 by Representative Fant. If passed, the new law would eliminate the exemption, thereby requiring adjuster candidates to take 40 hours of pre-licensing and the state test. HOW THIS WILL AFFECT EACH CANDIDATE The possible change in the law means that: 

1. Any candidates for an adjuster license who want the exemption from the state test should immediately take and complete an approved Designation prior to the projected date of July 1, 2015, when the new law would take effect;

 2. Any candidate for an adjuster license after that date may be required and should be prepared to take the designation and then study for the state test. 

HOW THIS WILL AFFECT INSURANCE COMPANIES The cost of licensing each new adjuster will increase due the the expense of the adjuster study manual textbook ($50 + tax); along with the testing fee ($56.00); The time for licensing will increase due to the additional study time to prepare for the state exam. If you have questions or comments you may contact: Senator Richter: (239) 417-6205 Representative Fant: (850) 717-5015 The proposed bill may be viewed at: http://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2015/1222/BillText/__/HTML
