If you have not previously held a producer license in this state or any other state, you will need to take insurance exams for those lines of authority you wish to sell in this state. (Contact Prometric at 800.864.8373 for information on the insurance exams.) Upon completing and passing your exam(s) you will need to complete a resident producer license application online at Sircon.
The licensing fee is paid electronically ($25 plus a service fee).
No pre-licensing education is required in South Dakota to obtain a resident or non-resident producer license.
