Let’s get started!
#1: Meet the Basic Requirements for the Wyoming Adjuster License
Before you start taking steps to get your resident adjuster license, make sure you meet Wyoming’s basic requirements.
- Be an adult (age 18);
- Be a resident of Wyoming or of another state which permits residents of Wyoming to act as adjusters in that state;
- Be trustworthy and of good reputation
- Have and maintain an office accessible to the public;
- Keep in that office the usual and customary records (can be electronic);
- Meet at least one of the following:
- Be a full-timed salaried employee of a licensed adjuster,
- A graduate of a recognized (ABA accredited) law school, or
- Have experience or special education or training on the handling of claims of sufficient duration and extent to be competent.
Following a felony conviction, the state will deny a license application until the completion of all terms and conditions of sentencing, including probation and the payment of restitution.
If you meet these basic requirements, it’s time to strategize how to ace the Wyoming Adjuster state exam.

#4: Submit an Application for Your Wyoming Adjuster License
After receiving your application and fees, the Wyoming Department of Insurance will send you a fingerprinting packet for the state’s Criminal History Record Check. Process and submit your fingerprints according to the instructions in the packet.
Applications will not be fully processed until your fingerprints have been received and processed. Your license will be issued once the Department receives your background report and determined you meet all requirements and are fit for licensing.
You can check to see if your Wyoming Adjuster License has been issued through Sircon.
#5: Complete Wyoming Adjuster 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 Wyoming adjusters are required to complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) every two years. The 24 hours must include:
- 3 Hours of Ethics
You cannot receive credit for any course more than once in any CE reporting period. Excess CE hours cannot be carried over into the next compliance cycle.
AdjusterPro offers over 40 hours of state-approved continuing education courses for Wyoming adjusters.

Wyoming 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 Wyoming adjusters, visit our Wyoming 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.
Wyoming grants reciprocal licenses to adjusters who hold a home state or Designated Home State (DHS) license, as long as that state requires an exam, background and fingerprinting, and 24 hours of CE per renewal period. Due to these requirements, Wyoming does not offer reciprocity to adjusters from the following states: AL, AZ, CT, DE, GA, HI, ME, MI, MS, NV, NM, NY, OR, RI, SC, VT, WA, WV.
