How to Pass Your South Carolina Insurance Exam
Getting your insurance license can feel like an overwhelming challenge, from figuring out where to take the insurance exam, to determining whether there are any pre-licensing course requirements, to identifying your state’s requirement about fingerprinting.
America’s Professor is here to help. We’re the country’s preferred insurance exam prep provider.
We’ve helped thousands of people launch their careers as insurance sales agents, customer service reps, insurance adjusters, and more. We provide comprehensive online pre-licensing courses to help students prepare for and pass their insurance licensing exam on the first try.
Whether you’re looking to obtain a property and casualty insurance license or you want to expand your career with a life insurance license, here are the three basic steps to getting licensed:
- Prepare: Once you’ve determined which license you want to obtain, your next step is enrolling in a comprehensive pre-licensing course through America’s Professor to prepare for the exam. Whether it’s required in your state or not, our pre-licensing courses provide you with the essential knowledge you’ll need to pass the exam. AP courses include 24/7 access to a suite of online videos for 45 days, with time extensions at no charge if needed; our courses also include a hard copy textbook designed to complement the videos, as well as practice exams, sample questions, and first-class customer support.
- Pass: All 50 states require you to be licensed in order to sell insurance or even discuss insurance transactions. As with all states, South Carolina has its own specific licensing requirements—this is why there is a state-specific portion of the exam in addition to a national portion. America’s Professor will help prepare you for both.
- Apply: Once you pass the exam, you can formally apply for your insurance license, get fingerprinted with IdentoGO (visit: identogo.com/locations/south-carolina) and begin working/selling!
Exams & Scoring
South Carolina offers a range of exams, including a casualty insurance producer exam, an accident and health insurance producer exam, a public adjuster exam, and others.
You must score at least 70 on the exam to pass; as mentioned earlier, each exam consists of two parts: a state-specific section, and a national section. The two scores are not averaged together—you will need a score of 70 on both parts.
