Let’s get started!

#1: Meet the Basic Requirements for the Indiana Adjuster License

Before you start taking steps to get your adjuster license, make sure you meet Indiana’s basic requirements.

  • Be determined to be trustworthy, reliable, and of good reputation
  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Be a resident of Indiana
  • Not have committed any act that is grounds for denial, suspension or revocation of a license

If you meet these basic requirements, it’s time to strategize how to ace your state exam.

#2: Take Our Indiana Pre-Licensing Course and Pass the Exam

Indiana is one of a handful of states that require you to take a state-approved pre-licensing course before they’ll allow you to take the adjuster exam. But don’t worry! AdjusterPro makes it easy to complete the prerequisite course and pass the state exam because they are both included in our Indiana Adjuster Courses. No additional testing or coursework is required.

After you complete the required 40-hour pre-licensing course, you are given a 150-question, multiple-choice exam which you will also take online. You must correctly answer at least 70% of the questions to pass. After passing, we will submit your results to the state for you.

Our course has been rigorously prepared and is regularly updated. Our online classroom allows you to print reference materials, take practice tests, and even create your own quizzes to help with subjects you are struggling with. We recommend moving on to the exam only after you’re consistently making 90% on your practice tests and passing all the quizzes with flying colors.

Please note: AdjusterPro is the only provider for the Indiana state adjuster exam. If you have taken your pre-licensing course through another vendor, you will need to provide a Certificate of Completion from an approved provider before being allowed to take the state exam.

#3: Submit an Application for Your Indiana Adjuster License

#4: Complete Indiana Continuing Education and License Renewal Requirements 

Once you have your license, you’ll need to complete some additional steps every few years to keep it active. Resident Indiana adjusters are required to complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years to renew their license. You cannot receive credit for any course more than once in any CE reporting period. Excess CE credits cannot be applied to the next compliance cycle.

License renewal occurs on the last day of the individual’s birth month. Renew your license through Sircon.

Detailed renewal information is available on the IDOI Renewal Requirements page.

AdjusterPro offers over 40 hours of state-approved continuing education courses for Indiana adjusters. Courses can be purchased individually or as a discounted bundle that will completely fulfill the 24-hour requirement.

Indiana Adjuster License Reciprocity

Reciprocity means an adjuster holding a home state license can apply for an adjuster license in another state without having to take that state’s exam. If you want to learn more about reciprocity and why it’s vital to your success, visit our Reciprocity: The Truth About Adjuster Licensing Agreements Between States blog article.

Fees for reciprocal licenses vary by state, but on average you can expect to pay between $40 and $60 per application, although a few states charge up to $120. To see what states will offer reciprocal licensing privileges to Indiana adjusters, visit our Indiana Adjuster Reciprocity Map. At the bottom of the page, we also offer a downloadable guide to help you prioritize which reciprocal licenses you should get first.

Indiana grants reciprocal licenses to adjusters who are licensed in their home state, except CA, HI, NY, and RI. Indiana will also accept a Designated Home State (DHS) license for adjusters whose home state does not license insurance adjusters.
