You must apply for your license after you pass your exam. In North Carolina, you must submit a completed application within 12 months of passing the exam. You apply online through an organization called National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).
NIPR’s Helpdesk: 855-674-6477
Consider working with your supervisor, contact the North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI), or email us or give us a call at 800-270-1385 and we can point you in the right direction. However, remember that the North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI) is the official agency in North Carolina that you should rely on for information regarding insurance licensing matters.
Make sure you obtain your fingerprinting through Live Scan immediately before you apply for your license, as the NCDOI only has access to your fingerprint data for 30 days. If the fingerprinting data is stale, you will have to spend another fee and get your fingerprinting done again. See here.
