There are four basic insurance licenses: property, casualty, life and health.
In addition, agents are expected today to have licenses in other areas, including financial planning, etc. If he is becoming a State Farm agent, he will also have to pass the State Farm licensing tests in all the basic lines.
Most young new agents do not start from "scratch" with no clients. They take over where an agent is retiring or leaving the company for other reasons. They get part of the former agent's book of business to service, and then are left to build additional lines with existing clients, and solicit new clients. New agents have no time to take off 8 weeks to be "The Bachelor" or anything else.
I was "in the business" as a fully licensed employee of State Farm agents for over 21 years. The life of a new agent is no joke and is hard and frustrating. If this is what Roberto is doing, he is going to be a busy and tired young man.
