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 may find valuable information on the Mississippi Department of Insurance website here. You may also contact the Mississippi Insurance Department directly at (601) 359–3582 or by email at licensing@mid.ms.gov. After completing their course, candidates must pass their exam and apply for their license within two years.

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

Mississippi insurance exams are scantron form. The testing center will inform the candidate when and where their score will be available. If a candidate fails their exam, they must submit a new registration form and pay the examination fee of $85 and retake the exam which they failed. Candidates can retake their exam as many times as they need within the two years of their pre-licensing course completion. If a candidate does not pass their exam within the two year period, they will need to retake a pre-licensing education course, as the Certificate of Completion will be expired.
