Resident Producers

Detailed information about licensing for resident producers operating in Minnesota and links to appropriate forms.

In conjunction with Sircon, we have arranged for Minnesota resident producers and adjusters to take advantage of a new, web-based, personal compliance tool formerly called ProducerEDGE.

Fingerprinting


There are two options for having your fingerprints taken: you may pre-register with Idemia to schedule a time to be fingerprinted electronically at one of the Pearson VUE test centers that provides fingerprinting services, or you may go to any local police station or similar facility with manual fingerprinting capability to have your fingerprints taken manually.

Appointments for fingerprinting at a test center must be scheduled in advance through Idemia’s call center or website; Pearson VUE cannot provide walk-in fingerprinting services. You should schedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance, although same-day appointments are possible if times are available.

Scheduling with Idemia (electronic fingerprinting at a test center)

Go to the Pearson Vue website, or call Idemia at (866) 761-8069 (Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Central time) to make a fingerprint reservation as close to the start time of your examination as possible. (It does not need to be the exact same time. As long as you have made a fingerprint reservation, the test center will be able to process your prints when you arrive for your exam.) Use your full legal name, as it appears on your government-issued ID, when you make your fingerprint reservation, and be sure to select the correct license type. Write down the confirmation number; you will need it on the day of your appointment.

The fingerprint fee of $67.25 must be paid at the time of the reservation by credit card, debit card, or electronic check. If you are paying by e-check you must allow 3 business days (Monday-Friday) between the date you are making the appointment and the actual date of the appointment. That will allow sufficient time for the payment to clear.

When you arrive at the test center for your fingerprint appointment, please have the confirmation number that you received during the fingerprint reservation process. Your fingerprints will be taken electronically as close to your reserved time as possible. You will be required to sign a background check consent form. Be sure to select the correct license type when completing the consent form to avoid delays in processing your license application.

You do not need to pass the test in order to have your fingerprints taken.

Put it into another envelope along with a fully completed “Resident Insurance Producer/Insurance Adjuster/Real Estate Appraiser License Background Check Consent Form” and a check for $33.25 made out to “Minnesota Department of Commerce” and mail it to:
