There are slight different rules and regulations for obtaining a license in the state of Nevada depending on what kind of license you want to obtain. The purposes of this article will cover life insurance and life and health (combo) insurance license. 

You must have pre-licensing education to be eligible for both kinds of licenses. For life insurance you are required to have 20 hours of pre-licensing education and for Life and Health you must complete 40 hours of pre-licensing education. There are three acceptable ways you can obtain this education: in the classroom, self-study, or online. In order to receive a certificate of completion and to be able to sign up for the Nevada state examination, the final examination in the pre-licensing self-study courses must be oversee by a third party and not by a relative, friend, or business associate.
