Thanks for all the replies people. Really is greatly appreciated it. I submitted my application almost two weeks ago and it is still under state review.

I called and they told me because of the criminal background it had to go to a different department for review. Tuesday will be a full two weeks.

Anyone have any information on how long this process takes in the Georgia?

Again, thanks for all the replies!

With that said, I did have to jump thru some hoops and submit alot of paperwork but in the end, I got my license.

You can do the same, I'm sure.

JUST MAKE SURE YOU ARE 100% HONEST ON THE APPLICATION! No need to give them a reason to shoot you down. Honesty is the best policy!

Good luck my friend!!
So you made it through the licensing hoop, how hard was it to get appointments?

Just be honest with them and explain it was a mistake and they will usually work with you.

I think in this case no news is good news. If they were going to reject it flat out, I would think you would've heard already. Good luck to you and congrats for making your life better.

Well looks like GA is finally going to issue me a 12 month license but it will be on probation...

Now I've got to get my Texas Non-resident License and start getting appointments....

Again, I have a first offender record that is sealed. The record is drug related.

Carriers do not have access to the same records as State insurance departments right?


For example.. Aflac does not have access to the same criminal records as the GA department of Insurance?

Can anyone confirm this?

Did you have to sign a consent order? You have disclose it to Texas, also you will have to disclose it to the insurance companies, Most will sign you, some won't.
