ARKANSAS INSURANCE PRELICENSING INFORMATION

Arkansas requires producer licensing candidates to take and complete a state-approved prelicensing course. You will also need to apply for your license with the state insurance department and register for the state licensing exam. Make sure to register for all 3 (prelicensing course, license application, state exam) using the personally identifiable information exactly as it appears on your government-issued ID. Discrepancies will delay the licensing process.

  • Read every chapter and take the end-of-chapter quiz scoring 70% or better

DON'T FORGET YOUR READINESS EXAM!

ExamFX is so confident in the quality of its material that we offer our customers a first-time pass guarantee. If you don’t pass the first time around, we will refund your money. To qualify for this offer, you must pass our Readiness Exam with a score of 80% to determine maximum exam readiness. While completing this portion of your online course is not required, we highly recommend taking this extra step.

HOW DO I GET MY LICENSE?

Step 1: Complete a prelicensing course that has been approved by the Department of Insurance. Once you have completed your course, ExamFX will issue a certificate of completion which you may download and print from your online ExamFX account. 

Step 2: Complete the Electronic Resident Licensing Application at NIPR and the Criminal Background Check. Application fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable.

Step 3: Receive the Authorization to Test Confirmation via email from PSI. The Authorization to Test Confirmation is a separate document from the Certificate of Completion and must be obtained from PSI. Please allow 4 business days for PSI to process your Registration. After 4 business days, you may go online or call PSI to schedule the examination.

Step 4: Schedule your exam with PSI. Your exam may be taken at a physical PSI examination center or via a remote online proctored exam. You can register online by accessing PSI’s registration website at PSI 24 hours a day. For telephone registration, you will need a valid credit card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express or Discover). Call PSI at (800) 733-9267.

Security measures are taken for all testing methods. Restrictions on what you may bring with you to the testing center, into the testing room, and what you may wear will be enforced. For more detailed information about the security measures that will be taken during your testing appointment, please read and review the candidate bulletin offered at PSI Exams

To change or cancel your testing appointment, you must contact PSI at least 48 hours in advance or forfeit the examination fee.

Step 5: Take and pass your state licensing exam. On the day of your appointment, you must bring with you two valid forms of government issued identification (driver’s license, passport, military I.D., etc.) One form must contain your name and photograph and the second form must be signature bearing. You will not be able to take your exam if these requirements are not met.

Step 6: Apply for your license with NIPR. Detailed licensing information can be found through the Arkansas Department of Insurance.

Step 7: Maintain your license by being aware of your continuing education requirements. Most insurance licenses must be maintained by completing a certain number of credit hours of continuing education each licensing period. ExamFX offers continuing education courses that will help you comply with your state’s requirements. Click here to view your state’s education rules and stay on top of your license.
