Franklin, TN asked in Criminal Law, Employment Law and Gov & Administrative Law for Tennessee

Q: Can I obtain an insurance producer license in TN with a drug felony conviction in 2009?

I have a felony criminal record in Florida from 2002-2009. There are drug related felonies. I satisfied all terms of sentences in Oct. 2010. I've not been convicted of a crime since May of 2009. Is there a path in which I am able to acquire an insurance producer license in the state of Tennessee? If so, what might be the steps?
