I have a question about getting licensed in Florida.
I currently have my Texas All-Lines Adjuster license and want to get licensed in Florida. After reading Florida’s website, I am a bit confused. As a non-resident of Florida, the license requirements are as follows:
Step 2 - Qualifications for license:
Hold a company or independent adjuster license (resident or non-resident) that Florida has a reciprocal agreement with. [Exempt from State Examination]
[Click here to view the reciprocal list]
If you do not hold one of the prerequisites above, you will be required to take the state examination. [Requires State Examination]
Texas is listed as a reciprocal state.
Does this mean I can get a Florida license without taking the state examination? Because as I was filing out my Florida license application, it indicated that I would have to take the exam.
So, can someone tell me if, as a licensed Texas independent adjuster, I am exempt from taking the Florida examination? This is probably a very stupid question, but I wanted to make sure before I signed up for the exam.
Thanks in advance.
the quickest way to secure a solid answer would be to contact Florida's Business and Consumer services and...ask
I cannot answer your question definitively with the limited information provided. Are you a resident of Texas? Do you hold a resident or non-resident Texas adjuster's license?
If not a resident of Texas, which state do you reside in? Does your home state license adjusters? If they do, you MUST obtain that license before ANYTHING else.
If your home state does NOT license adjusters, have you designated your home state to be Texas (for licensing purposes)
One of the biggest dog and pony shows (IE scam) is to have folks flock to these Texas licensing courses without anyone asking the student if their home state licenses its adjusters.
In any case Chad, answer the questions I put out there and we can go from there
