HI Rev Stat § 431:9-206 (2013) What's This?

Case Notes

Where management company for foreign insurer authorized to do business in Hawaii did not hold a general agent, subagent, or solicitor license under this article (1993), it could not have been legally appointed as either a general agent, subagent, or solicitor of insurer; thus it did not qualify as a "general agent", "subagent", or "solicitor" as defined by this chapter (1993), did not fall within the parameters of the category described by §237-13(7) and was thus subject to a general excise tax rate of four per cent pursuant to §237-13(6). 115 H. 180, 166 P.3d 353 (2007).

§431:9-206 Examinations for license. (a) Each applicant for license as an adjuster or independent bill reviewer shall prior to the issuance of any such license, personally take and pass to the satisfaction of the commissioner an examination given by the commissioner as a test of the applicant's qualifications and competence.

(b) This requirement shall not apply to applicants who at any time within the three-year period next preceding date of application held a license in this State which conferred powers comparable to those being applied for.

(c) Applicants who held a license on December 31, 1987, shall not, for the purpose of qualifying for the issuance or extension of such license after January 1, 1988, be required to take an examination.
