WHAT IS A TEMPORARY LICENSE?
The Department may issue a temporary insurance producer license with a term of up to 180 days to allow an individual to service insurance business in the following cases:
- To the surviving spouse or court appointed personal representative of a licensed insurance producer who dies or becomes a person with a mental or physical disability to allow adequate time for the sale of the insurance business owned by the producer, for the recovery of the producer and return of the producer to the business or to provide for the training and licensing of new personnel to operate the producer's business.
- To a member or employee of a business entity that is licensed as an insurance producer on the death or disability of an individual who is the designated producer on the business entity application or license.
- To the designee of a licensed insurance producer who enters active service in the armed forces of the United States.
All insurance professionals (both residents and nonresidents) can apply for licenses, renew licenses, and update addresses and phone numbers online through the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR), at www.nipr.com.
NIPR license and renewal applications are easy to complete, and we can usually process them faster than applications that are mailed to us. NIPR charges a small transaction fee (around $5 to $7) to process a license application and fee payment. Many people have found that overall, the added convenience plus the time and postage savings are worth paying the fee.

ARS § 41-1030(G) requires most Arizona government agencies to prominently print the provisions of ARS § 41-1030(B), (D), (E) and (F) on all license applications. The following is the language in ARS § 41-1030(B), (D), (E) and (F):
B. An agency shall not base a licensing decision in whole or in part on a licensing requirement or condition that is not specifically authorized by statute, rule or state tribal gaming compact. A general grant of authority in statute does not constitute a basis for imposing a licensing requirement or condition unless a rule is made pursuant to that general grant of authority that specifically authorizes the requirement or condition.
D. This section may be enforced in a private civil action and relief may be awarded against the state. The court may award reasonable attorney fees, damages and all fees associated with the license application to a party that prevails in an action against the state for a violation of this section.
E. A state employee may not intentionally or knowingly violate this section. A violation of this section is cause for disciplinary action or dismissal pursuant to the agency’s adopted personnel policy.
F. This section does not abrogate the immunity provided by section 12-820.01 or 12-820.02.
