How to Pass Your Virginia Insurance Exam
Knowledge is the key to passing your insurance exam, and you’re in good hands with America’s Professor. We have decades of experience teaching students just like you. Our comprehensive courses are designed to be engaging, interesting, and informative to help you retain the information. Whether you want to sell life and annuities insurance or your goal is to become a licensed property & casualty insurance agent, America’s Professor can help.
There are no shortcuts to learning the information—no CliffsNotes or quick-study guides. Knowing the information inside and out and reviewing the materials up until the day of your insurance exam is the best way to ensure you pass with flying colors.
Here are the 3 main steps to becoming a licensed insurance agent:
- Prepare: Enrolling in a quality pre-licensing course is your first step once you’ve decided which license you want to obtain. America’s Professor offers comprehensive courses that provide you with everything you’ll need to know to pass your exam.
- Pass: The next step is passing your state licensing exam. Each state has its own licensing requirements, and you must obtain a resident producer license in the state of Virginia in order to sell policies or even discuss insurance transactions.
- Apply: Once you pass your insurance exam with a score of 70 or better you can formally apply for your insurance license and begin working!
Exams & Scoring
Virginia offers several different exams, including: life, annuities & health, property & casualty, personal lines, title insurance, and public adjusters.
You will need a score of 70 to pass, but note that each exam consists of two parts: a general knowledge section, and a state-specific section. You will need a score of 70 or greater on each section—the two scores are not averaged.

Exam Registration, Testing Centers, Licensing Application Fees and Fingerprinting
- Registration: You must register for the exam by calling Pearson VUE (the testing company) at 1-888-204-6272; it’s a good idea to call at least 3 days in advance of the date you plan to take the exam to ensure you secure a spot.
- Testing Centers: There are several test centers throughout the state of Virginia and neighboring states where you can take your exam. Find a test center near you on this page.
- Licensing Fees: The licensing exam fee is $51; you may take up to two exams for that fee. If you need to retake any portion of the exam, the fee is the same (an additional $51). Once you’ve passed your exam you must apply for your license. All license types have a non-refundable application fee of $15, except for the public adjuster license, which has a fee of $250. You can submit your application request either through NIPR (National Insurance Producer Registry) or Vertafore (formerly Sircon).
- Fingerprinting: There is no fingerprinting requirement, however, the licensing application will ask several background check questions. Should you answer “yes” to any of those questions, a more in-depth process will be required.
