You can apply for an individual insurance licence through the Insurance Council's online portal. To do so, you will need to login with a portal account.
If you already have a portal account, have previously held an insurance licence in BC or written the LLQP exam in BC
, you can log into the online portal with your user name and password. You can then select "Apply for a Personal License" from the main menu.
First time applying for a license with the Insurance Council and have no LLQP exam history with us?
You will first need to create a portal account here
. Please note, you will need to enter your legal name exactly as it appears on your government issued photo ID. You must also add a residential and
service address to your account.
Go to the online portal and login to your account.
From the main menu, click on " Apply for a personal licence."
Follow the steps to enter all the information required, including the uploading of all corresponding documents (i.e., government issued photo ID, qualifying course results, etc).
Once you have completed and submitted your application, the agency/firm you will represent will be contacted to verify your authority to represent them. Please note this does not apply to Unaffiliated agents.
Once the agency/firm has verified your application and has notified the Insurance Council, your application will then be reviewed by a Licensing Officer typically within 10-15 business days from that date. (See processing times) If additional information is required, you will be notified by email.
On approval of the application, you will receive a confirmation email from the Insurance Council's Licensing Team.
If you require assistance with any aspect of the online application process, please contact
our Licensing Team directly.
Even if you have submitted an application and have obtained employment or a contract with an insurance company, you must hold a licence before you can conduct insurance activities in BC.
