How to Renew Your West Virginia Adjuster License

WV 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.

In West Virginia, adjuster licenses expire on the last day of your birth month every other year. If you were licensed in an even-numbered year, your expiration will be in an even-numbered year – and vice versa.

You can find your expiration date using the SBS West Virginia license lookup tool.

Step 1: West Virginia Adjuster Continuing Education

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

The CE requirement for adjusters is: 24 hours, including 3 in ethics. 

There are two ways to meet your continuing education requirements:

Take an Online CE Course

Online continuing education courses are the most common method to fill complete your CE. 

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


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

Take a Class at an Adjuster Event

It is less common to fill your entire continuing education requirement at live events.

Adjuster conferences, conventions, and other events often offer CE hours 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 West Virginia Office of the Insurance Commissioner recommends you finish your CE hours 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. 


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

Step 2: West Virginia Adjuster License Renewal Application

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

WVOIC 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 NIPR so you don’t miss any correspondence from the state.

Submit your renewal using NIPR.

The adjuster license renewal fee is: $50

West Virginia Non-Resident Adjuster License Renewal

Non-Resident Renewal

Continuing Education

CE | Follow your home state

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

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 West Virginia non-resident adjuster license renewal.

Submit your renewal using NIPR.

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

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.


If your home state or designated home state doesn’t have a continuing education requirement (AZ, CT, HI, ME, MI, NY, RI, 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 hours)
  3. Complete continuing education for your CE state

Texas is the most common choice for CE State.

West Virginia 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

Up to 1 year after the expiration date, you can file a late renewal. The additional fee for late renewal is $50.

As with the standard renewal, you must complete your CE requirements before late renewal or reinstatement.

If you don’t complete your CE by the expiration date, you’ll be assessed a Late CE Fee. The fee is equal to $5/incomplete hour ($5 x # incomplete hours).

If your license is more than 1 year past the expiration date, you’ll need to apply for a new license. You can find those instructions on our West Virginia Adjuster License guide.
