What are the questions on the Utah insurance exam like? Do you have any sample insurance test questions?
The questions in our insurance exam simulator are VERY representative of the questions on the Utah state licensing exam. Here are a couple examples of what you can expect:
|Utah Insurance School Sample Practice Questions from the Licensing Exam|
Life & Health Insurance Questions
Which of the following insurance concepts makes an insured "whole"?
Property & Casualty Insurance Questions
Which of the following homeowners' policies provide named peril coverage on contents and all risk protection on the entire dwelling?
Utah Insurance Regulations
In Utah, a lapsed policy may be reinstated:
Property and liability insurance policies are contracts of indemnity. This means that an insured is only entitled to recover payment to the extent of the economic loss incurred. The principle of indemnity states that no one should profit from an insurance claim. This principle prevents an insured from profiting from an insurance policy. The purpose of buying insurance is not to make a profit, but to restore the insured to the same financial condition that was in existence prior to the loss (make them whole).
The HO-3 policy form provides open-peril coverage on Coverages A, B and D. Coverage C, however, is protected on a named peril basis. The HO3 policy provides the broadest scope of coverage since it provides all-risk insurance protection.
If a policy lapses, Utah insurance law allows the policy owner may apply to have the policy reinstated. The insured must provide evidence of insurability; and pay past-due premiums, any outstanding policy loans, and interest on the outstanding loan and past-due premiums. Reinstatement must be applied for within 3 years.

No. Pursuant to UCA Section 31A-23a-109, Utah generally has reciprocity with other states. Provided that your application and fees have been properly submitted to the department, and your license in your home state is in good standing, Utah will issue a non-resident license to an individual or organization holding the same license in their resident state.
I am a claims adjuster. What do I do if I want to adjust claims in Utah?
Independent and Public Adjusters are required to be licensed in Utah.
If the resident state DOES license for the adjuster license, we will generally have reciprocity with that state and will issue a license based upon your compliance with your resident state. Applications are completed electronically via Sircon or NIPR.
If you resident state DOES NOT license adjusters, we will issue a license if you either pass our exam or already hold a non-resident adjuster license in another state. The option to apply electronically is not available; therefore you must submit the NAIC Uniform Application.
The application must be submitted via email or fax. The Utah Department of Insurance does not accept mailed applications or checks. You can email the application to Heidi at email@example.com or fax to 801-538-3830. A credit card number must be provided.
What do I do if I move or change my contact phone number?
Section 31A-23a-412 of the Utah Insurance Code requires all licensees to notify the Commissioner in writing, within 30 days, of any change of address or telephone number. Producer licensees must process their own license changes electronically via SIRCON.
Correspondence from the Department is mailed to the licensee's business mailing address on file with the department. If a PO Box is used, a street address must also be furnished.
If you are moving from one state to another, you are not able to complete your address change through SIRCON or NIPR. In accordance with Rule R590-244-11, this request must be submitted via fax, email or a PDF attachment to an email:
- The name and title of the individual submitting the amendment,
- The relationship to the licensee of the individual submitting the amendment,
- The following attestation made by the individual submitting the amendment: "I hereby attest that all of the information submitted is true and correct, and that I am the individual licensee for whom the requested change is being submitted, or an authorized responsible representative of the individual or agency licensee for whom the requested change is being submitted."
Please submit the request by faxing to 801-538-3830 or emailing as a PDF attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do I have to notify the Department of Insurance if I change my name? What about changing the name of my insurance business?
Individual name changes are completed online with SIRCON.
At this time, organizations are not able to complete name changes through SIRCON or NIPR. Please submit the Change/Requestform by faxing to 801-538-3830 or emailing as a PDF attachment to email@example.com.
Where can I get the forms referenced on this page?
Other than the few exceptions provided under UCA Rule R590-244, all license applications, appointments, designations and license amendments are now required to be submitted electronically to the department using SIRCON or NIPR. The forms may be used only for those exceptions that cannot be submitted electronically via SIRCON or NIPR.
