Fingerprinting Information



In
conjunction with filing your initial application for licensure as an insurance producer, you must submit fingerprints via Live Scan at any of the Pennsylvania Prometric test center locations. Fingerprint samples are required in order to comply with the statutory requirements.  The Insurance Department uses this information to receive national criminal history background information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). 

Test Center Locations - During the electronic application process at the test center, you will also pay the fingerprinting fee ($36.25) which will enable you to submit your fingerprints before leaving the exam testing center.  You must provide a copy of your passing producer exam score and confirmation of payment of all fees in order to be fingerprinted.
