Step 1: Complete a prelicensing course that has been approved by the Department of Insurance. Once you have completed your course, they will issue a certificate of completion which you may download and print from your online account.
Step 2: Schedule your exam with your state’s testing provider, Pearson Vue at least 24 hours in advance. First-time users are required to create an account. You may also schedule over the phone at (800) 274-2616. Your exam may be taken at a physical Pearson Vue examination center or via a remote online proctored exam. Your exam fee must be paid at the time of reservation.
Step 3: Take and pass your state licensing exam. On the day of your appointment you must bring with you one valid form of government issued identification (driver’s license, passport, military I.D., etc.) which must contain your name and photograph. You must also bring with you your certificate of completion. You will not be able to take your exam if these requirements are not met.
After the exam, you will be provided with your official score report.
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.
