HOW DO I GET A WYOMING PUBLIC ADJUSTER LICENSE?

WYOMING RESIDENTS

Anyone 18 years old or older can apply for a public adjuster license. The steps you need to follow if you are a Wyoming resident are:

*Providing all available documents regarding any administrative actions or criminal convictions you may have will shorten the time necessary for review of your application. In most circumstances, a license may be granted even if you have felony convictions. However, additional documentation and written permission from the Commissioner will be necessary for certain felony convictions.

  1. Get your fingerprints taken and sent to the Department for a background check (A fingerprinting packet will be mailed to you after you have applied)

Many non-resident license applications are approved the same day.
