How to Renew Your Texas Adjuster License

TX adjuster license renewal is a simple process. Essentially, you’ll just need to complete your CE requirements and submit your renewal application before the expiration date. This guide will walk you through the process step-by-step.

You can find your expiration date using the Texas Department of Insurance license lookup tool.

Step 1: Complete your Continuing Education Requirements

The first step to renewing your Texas adjuster license is to complete your continuing education requirements (CE).

The CE requirement for adjusters is: 24 hours, including 3 in ethics. At least 12 hours must be “classroom” or “classroom equivalent” courses.

There are two ways to meet your continuing education requirements:

Take an Online CE Course

This is the most common method. 

These are self-paced, video/text courses that fill your entire credit requirement. It’s the most simple and quick way to get the education you need. It’s also the most price-effective method.

Recommended

Check out our recommended CE course – $49 + state fee.

Take a Class at an Adjuster Event

This method is less common. 

Adjuster conferences, conventions, and other events often offer CE credits for attending classes at the event. 

The downside is that these classes generally only offer 1-4 credit hours each. It’s better to see these classes as more targeted training, rather than a reliable CE path.

Check out our Adjuster Events page to find events near you.

When to Take Continuing Education Courses

You can take continuing education courses any time during your two year license term. 

The Texas Department of Insurance recommends you finish your CE credits 7 or more days before your expiration date. This allows time for the course provider to submit proof of completion and for the state’s system to update. 

Note

Continuing education is easy to complete, but it’s also easy to forget. Don’t put it off until the last minute!

Step 2: Adjuster License Renewal Application

Once you’ve completed your CE, you can submit your renewal application during the renewal window.

TDI will send you a renewal notice when the renewal window opens. This is generally 60-90 days before the expiration date.

If you’ve changed your mailing or email address since your last renewal, be sure to update your information in Sircon so you don’t miss any correspondence from the state.

Submit your renewal using Sircon.

The adjuster license renewal fee is: $50

Texas Non-Resident Adjuster License Renewal

Non-Resident Renewal

Continuing Education

CE | Follow your home state

Renewing your non-resident Texas adjuster license is simple. The process includes keeping your home state license in good standing, and applying for renewal before the expiration date.

License expiration dates from home states and non-resident states don’t often line up, so tracking all of your license data in a spreadsheet or calendar is a wise move.

Keeping your home state license in good standing essentially means keeping up with your continuing education and renewing on time. If that’s in order, all you have to do is submit your Texas non-resident adjuster license renewal.

Submit your renewal using Sircon.

The non-resident adjuster license renewal fee is: $50

Note

If your home state or designated home state doesn’t have a continuing education requirement (AZ, CT, HI, ME, MI, NY, SC, VT), you still need to complete CE to sustain your non-resident licenses.

The generally accepted solution to this issue is:

  1. Pick a state where you have a non-resident license, we’ll call this your “CE State
  2. Ensure your CE state has a sufficient CE requirement (24 credits)
  3. Complete continuing education for your CE state

Texas is the most common choice for CE State.

Texas Adjuster License Late Renewal and Reinstatement

If you’ve let your license expire, depending on the length of time past the expiration date, there are options to submit a late renewal or reinstate your license

If you haven’t completed your continuing education requirements by the expiration date, TDI imposes a $50/hour late CE fine (max $500).

Along with the late CE fine, from 1 day to 90 days after the expiration date, you can file a late renewal. The additional fee for late renewal is $25.

Between 91 days and 1 year after the expiration date, you can reinstate your license. To reinstate your license, you must:

  1. Complete your outstanding continuing education hours
  2. Pay the late CE fine
  3. Submit new fingerprints
  4. Submit a new application with a $25 late fee mailed to TDI

More details on reinstatement can be found on the TDI website.

If your license is more than 1 year past the expiration date, you’ll need to apply for a new license and pay all outstanding late CE fines. You can find new application instructions on our Texas Adjuster License guide.
