Step 3: Study For Your State Exam

Most states offer self-study and instructor-led pre-licensing course formats. Each format provides the same content, including numerous sample exam questions.

The primary difference between the two formats is that the self-study format means you do all the work yourself, whereas the instructor-led format typically provides two days of instructor lecture in both live and recorded options.

The recorded function works best for those individuals who either work full-time and/or cannot attend the lectures at the scheduled times. In that case, you can simply view the recording of the lecture. Regardless of which format you choose, make sure you take as many of the sample exam questions provided with your course, as these sample exams provide a good measure of your knowledge and your ability to pass your state's exam.

Step 4: Pass The Exam And Affiliated Requirements

Once you have completed your pre-licensing course, taken several of the sample exams, and feel that you are ready to take the state licensing exam, simply schedule your exam with your state's designated testing center. For your convenience, we provide the contact information for both your state's insurance licensing department and its testing center on the bottom of our state licensing pages (the same page that shows the recommended courses).

Be aware that you typically will be required to pass a background check, meet minimum age requirements, etc. before the state will issue your license.
