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: Schedule your exam with your state’s testing provider, Pearson VUE. The fastest way to schedule your exam is to go online or call (800) 274-2609. 

To change of 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 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 2: Nevada requires digital fingerprinting and criminal history background reports. You can find fingerprinting information and locations here. Access Pearson VUE's Nevada Insurance Candidate Handbook for more information and to see the exam content outlines.

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. You will not be able to take your exam if these requirements are not met.

At the end of your exam, you will receive a printed score report marked “pass” or “fail.”

Step 4: Apply for your license at Sircon. You must include your signed Fingerprint Background Waiver Form, the receipt for your fingerprints, and any other required supporting documentation. Learn more about your license application requirements at the Nevada Insurance Department’s individual producer licensing page.

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 CE each licensing period. ExamFX offers CE 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.
