DC does not license insurance adjusters. For DC residents wanting to become a licensed independent adjuster, a nonresident Designated Home State (DHS) License can be obtained from Texas. We have the courses you need to fulfill your licensing requirements.

Get Your Adjuster License for DC Here
Washington, DC faces brutally cold winter storms as well as coastal rains and flash flooding each year. While DC doesn’t offer state-specific insurance adjuster licensing, you can still work there by getting your Texas All-Lines Adjuster License through 2021 Training and choosing Texas as your “Designated Home State”. This strategy opens the door to more deployments across more states, including all the states that don’t provide their own credentials.
An All-Lines Adjuster License allows you to become licensed in one state and have that act as your license to practice in states that don’t offer state-specific licensing, like DC. The advantages of choosing Texas as your designated home state are two-fold: first, because it’s a large state with volatile weather, it’s a popular choice for adjusters to become licensed in. Second, because it’s so popular, there are always plenty of required continuing education courses available to Texas claims adjusters. These CE courses are necessary to keep your license current.

Why Get a TEXAS Insurance Adjuster License?
You’ll need Continuing Education credits to renew your license. While you might be able to earn your license faster in some states, Texas is always on the list for approved CE courses. When you’re licensed here, you can be sure you’ll always have plenty of state-approved CE courses available. Not all states have this advantage.
Texas is also recognized by many states for reciprocity. This makes it easy to get licensed in other states if you keep your Texas license current. Reciprocity means the other states recognize your Texas license and don’t require you to take their own state licensing exams. This also applies to states like DC that don’t have their own licensing.
