NOTE: The first four steps will allow you to schedule and take the state exam. To obtain your license you must also have filed your financial responsibility forms. Whomever you represent as an agent should have this information. If you are not being appointed by an insurance company, call the Independent Agents of Louisville at 502-459-8880 Ext 32 and talk to Sophia Crowe. You will have to obtain a Surety Bond or an Errors and Omissions insurance policy. The only other item that may need to be filed is Form 8302. This is an appointment form that your insurance company will need to send in for you to sell insurance for said insurance company.
