The Division of Agent Licensing oversees and facilitates every aspect of licensing for individuals and business entities engaged in insurance transactions. The division is responsible for ensuring that licensees comply with licensing laws and regulations, including the approval of continuing education and pre-licensing course of instruction.

Once all three pieces have been submitted to DOI, you must allow 3 to 5 business days for review and processing.
An eServices account type of “Individual License Account" can't be set up until DOI receives and loads the insurance application from NIPR. This usually takes 24 hours from the time the NIPR transaction is completed. When the application is loaded into the database, it generates a KY License number – DOI #. You have to have that number in order to set up the account properly.
