Discontinuation of Automobile Club Licensing

Effective July 1, 2016, Virginia repeals statutes relating to the licensure of automobile clubs by the State Corporation Commission, including provisions regarding the authority of insurance agents to negotiate automobile club contracts on behalf of licensed automobile clubs and the issuance of guaranteed arrest bond certificates by an automobile club or association.

 

Effective July 1, 2016, agencies are required to maintain a Designated Responsible Licensed Producer ("DRLP") responsible for the agency's compliance with insurance laws and regulations. The DRLP must be an employee, officer, or director of the agency. Limited Liability Companies and Partnerships, members and partners qualify respectively as the DRLP. For limited lines agencies the DRLP is not required to be an employee, officer, or director of the vendor or lessor. Agencies are required within 30 calendar days to report the removal of the DRLP and name a new DRLP. Review and make updates to the DRLP at www.sircon.com/virginia. Click on Maintain Designated Licensed Producer link located on the menu on the left side of the page. A Sircon service fee may apply
