Q: I was convicted of a felony “carrying a firearm without a license” and want to become a licensed insurance agent. Will I be able to take the exam and receive my license? I seen there is FBI and criminal background clearances.
A: Call the state licensing bureau for insurance agents, immediately (or the PA Insurance Commission) and ask what type of crimes disqualify you from insurance licensing. You can probably google that question for a start. If you were actually convicted of the crime you reference, you most certainly have a criminal history. Whether that type of crime excludes you from insurance licensing is entirely up to the organization who issues insurance licenses.
