Electronic Fingerprints Required for Insurance Licensing

Electronic Fingerprints Now Required

(OnlineEd – Portland, OR) On January 1, 2011, the Insurance Division of Oregon began requiring all insurance license applicants to have their fingerprinting done electronically at certified testing centers. Previously, applicants were able to choose the location and provider, and whether or not they were electronic. By requiring fingerprinting to be done at the testing center, the Insurance Division is able to speed up the processing and validation of the fingerprints and decrease licensee wait-time.

All new licensees are advised to call their exam provider and set an appointment. The provider will digitally scan fingerprints and transmit them electronically to the Oregon State Police for processing.
