GEORGIA INSURANCE PRELICENSING INFORMATION

Georgia 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.

HOW DO I COMPLETE MY EXAMFX PRELICENSING EDUCATION COURSE?

Georgia requires 20 hours of prelicensing education for each line of authority, 40 for a dual line of authority.

To earn your certificate of completion:

  • Read every chapter and take the end-of-chapter quiz
  • Score 70% or better on each chapter quiz
  • Complete and pass the Certificate Exam (may also be called Practice Exam: Exam Mode in your course) with a minimum score of 70% 

Your exam will be based on the Georgia exam outline, which can be found in PearsonVUE's Candidate Handbook.

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. The certificate of completion is valid for one year.

Step 2: Schedule your exam with your state’s testing provider, Pearson VUE. The fastest way to schedule your exam is to do so online at Pearson VUE. You can also schedule your exam over the phone at (800) 274-0488. Your exam may be taken at a physical Pearson Vue examination center or via a remote online proctored exam. Exam fees must be paid at the time of reservation.

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

IMPORTANT NOTE: When you register for ExamFX prelicensing courses, schedule your license exam, and/or apply for your license it is important to use the same name that appears on the identification forms you plan to present at the time of your testing appointment.

Step 3: 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 of which must contain your name and photograph and both of which must contain a valid signature. It is highly recommended that you also bring your certificate of completion, printed from your ExamFX online account. You will not be able to take your exam if these requirements are not met.

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 Pearson Vue.

If testing at a Pearson VUE testing site, the score report will be provided at the test center. If testing online, candidates will need to log into their Pearson VUE account to obtain their score report.

Step 4: Apply for your license. Georgia resident applicants must use the online application service at SIRCON or NIPR. Licensing applications must include a citizenship affidavit (GID-276-EN), fingerprinting information, and a completed Resident Insurance License Application (Form GID-103-AL). Other forms or information may be required and is dependent on the line of authority you are seeking licensure for. Required forms, additional licensure information, and fingerprinting process procedures may be found at www.oci.ga.gov. You must apply for a license prior to registering to be fingerprinted. You will need to retake your exam if you do not apply for your license within 60 days after passing the exam. Once the license application has been submitted, visit GBI to register to be fingerprinted. You will receive a registration approval email from GBI. Take your approval message with you to a fingerprint site and they will take your fingerprints.

Step 5: 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.
