Licensing Application Procedures
Oregon law requires the insurance division to conduct a fingerprint based background check and
perform a fitness determination on applicants for a resident license. Fingerprinting services
are available at a PSI
test center. PSI utilizes "live scan" technology, which digitally captures and
transmits the fingerprints to the Oregon State Police (OSP) and Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI), for a criminal records check. Fingerprinting is not required for resident licensees adding
a line of authority to an existing license.
