Prev Article 49. - UNIFORM INSURANCE AGENTS LICENSING ACTNext


40-4908.Same; waiver of examinations. (a) The commissioner shall waive examinations for an individual who applies for an insurance agent license in this state who was previously licensed for the same lines of authority in another state when the applicant establishes that:

(1) (A) The applicant is currently licensed in such other state; or

(B) if the application is received within 90 days of the cancellation of the applicant's previous license issued by such other state and if such other state certifies that, at the time of cancellation, the applicant was in good standing in such other state. In lieu of issuance of a certification by such other state that the applicant was in good standing, the commissioner may accept evidence from such other state's producer database records, maintained by the NAIC, its affiliates or subsidiaries, which indicate that the applicant is or was licensed in good standing for the line of authority requested.

(2) The applicant seeks a license as travel insurance agent to persons selling transportation tickets of common carriers, who shall act as such agent only as to transportation ticket policies, or health or accident insurance, or baggage insurance on personal effects in connection with such transportation tickets of common carriers.

(3) The applicant has been licensed in Kansas for the class of insurance the applicant is applying for and where the license has been voluntarily surrendered for not more than two years prior to the date of the application with all educational requirements satisfied for the current licensing period and where the commissioner is satisfied that the applicant is trustworthy and competent.

(4) The applicant is an applicant for a license to write insurance on growing crops in this state and has been continuously licensed to write such coverage in this state on and after April 30, 1986.

(5) The applicant has qualified by examination, but due to clerical error by an insurance company, the applicant was not certified pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 40-4912, and amendments thereto. Such insurance company shall pay all appointment fees that would have been paid had the applicant been properly appointed plus the penalty prescribed by K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 40-4912, and amendments thereto, for each violation.

(b) Any person licensed as an insurance agent pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 40-4906, and amendments thereto, in another state who moves to this state shall make application to become a resident licensee within 90 days after such person establishes legal residence in this state. Except as required by the commissioner by rule and regulation, no person who has been previously authorized for any line of authority shall be required to be examined in this state for the same line of authority.
