Special Notes

  • A license issued to a business entity that offers motor vehicle for rent or lease encompasses each office, branch office or place of business making use of the business entity's name in order to offer, solicit, and sell insurance.
  • The application for licensure must list the name, address, and phone number for each office, branch office, or place of business that is to be covered by the license. The licensee shall notify the department of the name, address, and phone number of any new location that is to be covered by the licensee before the new office, branch office, or place of business engages in the sale of insurance pursuant to this paragraph. The licensee must notify the department within 30 days after closing or termination an office, branch office or place of business. Upon receipt of notice, the department shall delete the office, branch office, or place of business from the license.
  • A licensed or appointed entity is directly responsible and accountable for all acts of the licensed employees.
  • Each office, branch office or place of business making use of the entity’s business name must file an “Application for Branch Office” after the primary location obtains the license.
