Oklahoma offers the following lines of authority for (independent) insurance adjusters:
Preparing for the exam is the first step towards adjuster licensure. Thus, you must do your best to obtain maximum amount of knowledge about insurance adjuster products and services.
For this reason, you must choose the most appropriate way of studying, which will have a good effect on the licensing process. To put it plainly, you may study on your own, or you may attend pre-licensing courses.
The first one, in reality, is a suitable option for those applicants, who have experience studying on their own. The second one, on the other hand, is no less advantageous, as it is designed to meet the needs of adjuster applicants.
After obtaining required education, you are to take the Oklahoma state insurance adjuster license exam. The latter is basically to test what you know about the major of an adjuster, including professional materials.

When you show up at the exam location, make sure you have two forms of current identification with you. A photo ID and other necessary documents are also needed. The testing facility will tell you which documents to bring.
