ABOUT INSURANCE BROKERS AND THE INSURANCE EXAM
Insurance brokerage in the United States is a regulated industry, with almost all states individually issuing brokerage licenses. Most states have reciprocity agreements whereby brokers from one state can become easily licensed in another. The exception to this rule is in the case of Hawaii, where all licensed brokers must live in the islands.
Getting an insurance broker license is relatively easy but specific rules depend upon the particular state in which you are trying to do business. Rules may also vary depending upon your choice of a real estate agent, or a real estate broker.
A real estate agent is an individual who works for a certain company, and tries to sell insurance products offered specifically by that company.
A broker is not limited to one insurance company, and can provide at offerings from many different companies.
