    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 Louisiana Department of Insurance at (225) 342-0860 or visit them online at www.ldi.state.la.us. After passing the examination, candidates must apply for their license within their one year license application period.

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

    Testing vendors will often ask for proof of Prelicensing 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 INSURANCE EXAM?

    This computerized exam is scored immediately upon completion of the exam. If a candidate fails to score at least 70% on the exam, they must pay a reexamination fee and retake the exam. There is no limit to how many times a candidate may take the exam within the one year license application period. Examination results are valid for one year from the date of examination.
