A: Requesting a pre-licensing determination is an optional step. There is no requirement that you request one.
A: No. The preliminary determination process is intended for individuals who have not yet submitted a formal application for licensure. If you have already submitted an application, please do not submit a request for pre-licensing determination.
A: There are several types of citations and/or offenses that do NOT need to be included.
- You may exclude summary traffic citations.
- You may exclude the following misdemeanor convictions or pending misdemeanor charges:
- driving under the influence (DUI),
- driving while intoxicated (DWI),
- driving without a license, reckless driving,
- or driving with a suspended or revoked license.
- You may also exclude juvenile adjudications (offenses where you were adjudicated delinquent in a juvenile court).
A: No. Insurance producer license applicants must still follow and meet criteria defined in the Producer Licensing Act, which includes 24 hours of pre-licensing education, successful completion of a licensing examination, and fingerprint submission. Submitting the preliminary determination form does not eliminate the fingerprint requirement or any other aspect of the formal licensure process.

A: No. The outcome of your preliminary determination is not a final determination. You will still need to complete the full, formal licensure process and your application will be reviewed in its entirety after you have completed all the pre-application requirements.

A: Your submission will be securely sent electronically to a Pennsylvania Insurance Department determination specialist.
The information will be assessed to ensure we have everything needed to complete the review process. A team member may reach out to request additional information or with any questions. The review will then be completed, and a determination will be made. A decision letter will be mailed to you notifying you of their findings.
