Florida Insurance License State Exam Information


Exam Registration Procedures

You can schedule your Florida insurance exam at any time. Completion of the pre-licensing course is NOT required in order to schedule the test. Our recommendation is to take the state exam 5-10 days AFTER you've completed your course. Scheduling can be completed by calling 1.888.274.2020 or visiting PearsonVUE.com. The state exam fee is $42 for each attempt. 

Use the code listed in the table below when scheduling by phone or online.

Regardless of which exam you take, a 70% score is required to pass. A passing score is valid for one (1) year from the passing date. You will be required to re-take the exam if you do not complete the licensing process within that time-frame. You are limited to five (5) examination attempts during the one (1) year period. 

Each exam contains 15 "pretest" questions that do not affect your final score. "Pretest" questions are distributed throughout the exam randomly. Most likely these questions will look very different from the course materials and practice questions covered in our class because we have no knowledge of the content of these "pretest" questions.
