About The Virginia Life And Health Insurance Exam

First, go to the Virginia State Police website and ask for a Criminal History Record Report. You will need to present this before you can receive your license. Next, you can schedule your exam. Pearson VUE administers the test, so contact them online to register for a $51 fee. You will need to bring proof of identity to the exam. In this case, that means two forms of I.D., including a picture I.D. like a driver's license, state I.D. card or passport. You have three exam options in Virginia:
  • Life Insurance: 105 questions, 2 hours
  • Health Insurance: 105 questions, 2 hours
  • Life, Accident and Health Insurance: 150 questions, 2 hours and 30 minutes
Each exam is a computer-generated and multiple-choice. When you complete the test, you will get a score report. If you have gotten 70 percent or more of the questions correct, that report will be marked "pass." If you pass, you can apply to Sircon for your license. You will need to include the Criminal History Record Report.

Tips For Studying For Your Life And Health Insurance License Exam

The following tips for studying for your Life and Health Insurance License exam should help you pass your exam on the first try.

Step 1: Make A Commitment - And Stick To It

Whether you plan to study full- or part-time, start by taking a few minutes to plan how study process. Will you spend an hour every evening? Spend all day every Tuesday? Have a mentor work with you? Regardless of what you plan, make sure you stick to it.

Step 2: Develop A Study Plan

Once you commit to when and how long you will study, plan on how to do it. Most students say they need 40 or more hours to feel prepared. Typically, they split the majority of their time between reading the textbooks or study materials and taking practice exams, so plan accordingly, but double-check your progress periodically and make adjustments as needed.

Step 3: Know The Format Of The Exam

The format of most state insurance exams is a timed, proctored, multiple choice test, typically consisting of 150 or more questions (the actual length and number of questions on your exam will depend on the state in which you are testing).

Step 4: Practice, Practice, And Practice Some More!

Whether you take one of our in-person, online, or self-study pre-licensing courses, all come with many sample exam questions. You can even build customized exams based on difficulty, length, and topic of your choice. As you'd probably guess, we suggest you take as many of these sample exams as possible so that you are fully prepared to pass your exam on the first time.
