Renew Business Entity License

You have attempted to access the Application to Renew Business Entity License, form LIC 448-29B. Pursuant to Section 1655 of the California Insurance Code (CIC), use of this form has been restricted. Specifically, this section states, in part, that no application for a license shall be deemed filed unless the document has been submitted by means of electronic service approved by the commissioner. Most business entity insurance producers must submit their on-time renewal to the California Department of Insurance (CDI) electronically. This requirement applies to business entities renewing the following license types:

  • Life-Only Agent
  • Accident and Health Agent
  • Property Broker-Agent
  • Casualty Broker-Agent
  • Personal Lines Broker-Agent
  • Administrator
  • Surplus Line Broker
  • Special Lines' Surplus Line Broker 
  • Life-Limited to the Payment of Funeral and Burial Expenses 
  • Limited Lines Automobile Insurance Agent
  • Life and Disability Analyst
  • Motor Club Agent
  • Credit Insurance Agent
  • Cargo Shipper Agent
  • Rental Car
  • Self Storage

If you are filing an on-time renewal for one of the above listed licenses you must use CDI's Free License Renewal Service. If you are filing a late renewal, or license type is not listed above, you may proceed to the Application to Renew Business Entity License, form LIC 448-29B.

Business Entities may, for good cause shown, request an exemption to the electronic filing requirements. Such requests may be made by contacting the Toll-Free Producer Licensing Hotline (800) 967-9331. These requests should be made several weeks prior to the license expiration date to ensure a timely renewal.
