FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I APPLY FOR MY LICENSE?

For questions regarding how to obtain a license after the examination has been passed, candidates should contact the Florida Department of Financial Services at (850) 413-3137 or visit them online at www.MyFloridaCFO.com/division/agents. After passing the examination, candidates must apply for their license within one year. After one year, the Department will require the candidate to take and pass their licensing exams again as well as repeat a pre-licensing course, as the certificate of completion is expired. The state of Florida requires candidates to get fingerprinted as part of the licensure process.

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

This computerized exam is scored immediately upon completion of the exam. If a candidate fails they must pay a reexamination fee and retake the entire exam. Candidates have five attempts to pass the exam. Examination results are valid for one year from the date of examination.
