I am an Arizona licensed agent and have recently moved to North Dakota and obtained employment through an agency in Williston, N.D. What are the requirements for me to become licensed in North Dakota?
According to the National Producer Database, your Arizona resident license is still active. You will need to cancel your Arizona resident license before you can apply for a North Dakota resident license. Once your Arizona license is cancelled, you can apply online with a credit card at www.nipr.com. The fee is $100, plus a $5 transaction fee. If you apply to North Dakota within 90 days of the date your Arizona license is cancelled, you will not have to take any prequalifying exams.
