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?

Candidates are only allowed to take the exam for a specific line of authority no more than four times in a 12 month period. Candidates must wait one year after the fourth examination failure to attempt the exam again. Examination results are valid for one year from the date of examination.
