WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE TEST CENTER THE DAY OF MY ARKANSAS INSURANCE EXAM?

Testing vendors will often ask for proof of Pre-License Education. It is therefore crucial that you bring your Certificate of Completion to the testing site. You cannot take anything into the test room with you other than what the proctor provides you. You will be able to leave your personal belongings in a locker in the testing center waiting room. They will provide you with a pen/pencil, scratch paper, and a basic function calculator at the test site.

IF I DON'T PASS IS THERE ANY WAITING PERIOD THAT APPLIES BEFORE I CAN RETAKE THE ARKANSAS INSURANCE EXAM?

This computerized exam is scored immediately upon completion of all parts of the exam. If a candidate fails either part, they must pay a reexamination fee and reschedule their exam.

If they do not pass on the third attempt, they must wait 4 weeks before the fourth attempt.
