Is there a pre-licensing course requirement in Georgia?

Yes. Students must take an approved pre-licensing course to prepare for the insurance licensing exam. Each approved course will have an approved provider/course number.

Georgia Property and Casualty agents/producers are required to take an approved 40-hour Property and Casualty course and pass the Pearson VUE 12-GA-06 licensing exam.

Georgia Property and Casualty Sub-Agents are required to take an approved 20-hour Property and Casualty course and do not have to pass a licensing exam, just apply under an existing agent.

Georgia Property Only agents/producers are required to take an approved 20-hour Property course and pass the Pearson VUE 12-GA-03 licensing exam.

Georgia Casualty Only agents/producers are required to take an approved 20-hour Casualty course and pass the Pearson VUE 12-GA-04 licensing exam.

Georgia Personal Lines agents/producers are required to take an approved 20-hour Personal Lines course (or 40-hour PC course) and pass the Pearson VUE 12-GA-55 licensing exam.

Georgia Adjusters are required to take an approved 40-hour Property and Casualty (should include Adjuster supplement) course and pass the Pearson VUE 12-GA-24 Adjuster exam.

Georgia Public Adjusters are required to take an approved 40-hour Property and Casualty (should include Adjuster supplement) course and pass the Pearson VUE 12-GA-20 Public Adjuster exam.

Georgia Life, Accident and Sickness (Health) agents/producers are required to take an approved 40-hour Life, Accident and Sickness course and pass the state Pearson VUE 12-GA-05 licensing exam.

Georgia Life, Accident and Sickness Sub-Agents are required to take an approved 20-hour Life, Accident and Sickness course and do not have to pass a licensing exam, just apply under an existing agent.

Georgia Life Only agents/producers are required to take an approved 20-hour Life Only course and pass the state Pearson VUE 12-GA-01 licensing exam.

Georgia Accident and Sickness (Health) agents/producers are required to take an approved 20-hour Accident and Sickness course and pass the state Pearson VUE 12-GA-02 licensing exam.

 

What kind of questions do they put on the Georgia insurance test?

 

All of the Georgia insurance exam questions are multiple choice. There are no fill-ins (no need to memorize) and no essay (no need to be ready to explain anything) questions.

For example:

georgia sample questions

A multiple choice test will usually test heavily on definitions (terminology) and numbers (dollar amounts and number of days).

The exam is drawn from a large pool of questions – you will have a different set of questions than the person sitting next to you. If you retake the exam, expect to see very few of the questions repeated on the next exam. Students report that the exams vary greatly in terms of the number of questions on any given topic.

Students report that about 1/3 of the questions are terminology (definitional) questions, 1/3 are number/day questions, and 1/3 are questions where you have to apply the knowledge to reason through a practical situation (story problems – usually short).

 

What score do I need to pass the Georgia insurance exam?

There are 6 basic exams given Georgia – Life, Accident & Sickness, Property, Casualty, Adjuster and Public Adjuster. In Georgia you can combined the exams for Property & Casualty (PC) and Life, Accident, Sickness (LAS). Georgia also has a Personal Lines exam for agents selling only personal policies (no commercial) such as homeowners and personal auto insurance.

In Georgia, you need a score of 70 to pass each exam. But, each exam consists of two parts – the “national” insurance section and the “state rules” section. You will need a score of 70 on each section – the two scores are not averaged together.

 

Are questions grouped by category?

 

Our students always want to know if the questions regarding indemnification (for example) are grouped together. No, questions and topics are randomly scrambled, but that never seems to be a problem for anyone.

 

What insurance exams are given in Georgia and what do they cost?

Georgia Pearson VUE Available Exams and Fees

*Personal checks and cash will not be accepted.

 

How many questions are on the Georgia insurance exam?

The Georgia license exam Test Content Outline (TCO) provided by Pearson VUE gives us the following breakdown for each exam:

The Georgia Property and Casualty exam has  100 questions. The break down is 70 questions on national/general content and 10 questions on Georgia state specific content + 20 pretest questions.

The Georgia Property Only exam has  100 questions. The break down is 70 questions on national/general content and 10 questions on Georgia state specific content + 20 pretest questions.

The Georgia Casualty Only exam has  100 questions. The break down is 70 questions on national/general content and 10 questions on Georgia state specific content + 20 pretest questions.

The Georgia Adjuster exam has  100 questions. The break down is 95 questions on national/general content and 5 questions on Georgia state specific content.

The Georgia Public Adjuster exam has  100 questions. The break down is 95 questions on national/general content and 5 questions on Georgia state specific content.

The Georgia Life, Accident and Sickness exam has  100 questions. The break down is 70 questions on national/general content and 10 questions on Georgia state specific content + 20 pretest questions.

The Georgia Life Only exam has  100 questions. The break down is 70 questions on national/general content and 10 questions on Georgia state specific content + 20 pretest questions.

The Georgia Accident & Sickness (Health) Only exam has  100 questions. The break down is 70 questions on national/general content and 10 questions on Georgia state specific content + 20 pretest questions.

The Georgia Personal Lines exam has 93 questions. The break down is 75 questions on national/general content and 5 questions on Georgia state specific content + 13 pretest questions.

Pretest questions do not count towards your score. You will not know what questions are real or pre-test questions when taking your exam. It’s very possible the pre-test questions will not even be covered in the Test Content Outline. It’s very important to know that these pre-test questions will be in your exam so you don’t start second guessing yourself when you see a question that you have no idea how to answer (make your best guess and stay calm!).

 

Where can I take the Georgia insurance exam?

Georgia Pearson VUE Test Centers

*Locations and schedules are subject to change. Please call 1-800-274-0488 for up-to-date information.

 

How do I sign up to take the Georgia insurance exam?

 

We recommend that you call Pearson VUE (the testing company) at 1-800-274-0488. Be sure to call at least 3 days in advance of the date you plan to take the exam. The earlier you sign up, the better your chances of getting the test date of your choice.

 

What if I fail the Georgia insurance exam?

 

If you fail the insurance license exam in Georgia you must wait 2 weeks before retaking the exam. You will be charged an additional test fee.

Note: Candidates who fail the examination three (3) times and had taken a pre-licensing course through an independent provider will be required to retake a pre-licensing course from a different provider prior to retaking the examination.

 

How much is the Georgia insurance license fee?

 

The Georgia Department of Insurance charges $100 per license type (ex. Property & Casualty or Life, Accident & Sickness) plus a $15 application fee.

 

How do I sign up for fingerprinting/background check and what is the fee?

 

You must schedule a fingerprint appointment with Cogent Systems, Inc. by visiting http://www.ga.cogentid.com or by calling 1-888-439-2512. The electronic fingerprint fee is $51-$52.75. (Georgia Pearson VUE Fingerprint Instruction Notice)

 

Which Georgia insurance test is the toughest?

 

Each insurance licensing exam presents its own challenge. Between Life and Accident & Sickness, students say that the Georgia Accident & Sickness insurance exam is the more difficult. Accident & Sickness insurance policies are simply more complicated than life insurance policies.

The Property insurance exam is easier than the Casualty insurance exam. Property insurance deals with easy to understand issues – fire, flooding, earthquake, etc. On the other hand, Casualty insurance deals primarily with Liability insurance – protection against lawsuits. Casualty insurance is a more conceptual topic and one that is more difficult for students to grasp – particularly if you have never been sued.

The state portion of the Georgia insurance exam is very detailed and presents its own challenges. The state topics tend to cover trivial details relating to complicated state regulations. None of this is easy, but that is why we work so hard to make the material both understandable and memorable.

This is a challenging exam. Put yourself on a strict schedule as you do your exam prep work. Be focused and disciplined as you do your insurance test prep.

 

Will I have adequate time to complete the Georgia insurance test?

 

Yes. We have never had students say that they ran out of time to complete the exam. Most students finish in about half of the allotted time (up to 2 hours). The only students who ever report that they ran out of time were those who were trying to memorize questions in the event they had to repeat the exam. If English is not your first language you can request extra time by filling out Pearson VUE’s English as a Second Language (ESL) Request Form. Keep in mind that this form needs to be submitted to Pearson VUE, and approved, before scheduling your exam. You will also need to submit a a letter (on official letterhead) from an instructor, like America’s Professor, or employer that verifies English is your second language. 

 

Is the Georgia insurance exam still given by the “paper and pencil” method?

 

No, this is a computerized exam. Virtually all of the students say the proctors were helpful, the room was quiet, and the computer worked well. The proctors will give you the opportunity to complete a practice exam to learn how to use the system. When you are done, you will NOT be given a copy of the exam, nor will you be given the opportunity to review particular questions and their answers. The exam will be scored immediately and you will know your results when you leave.

 

What is the best test prep method for the Georgia insurance exam?

 

There is no alternative to knowing the material. There are no shortcuts to learning but there are more effective and less frustrating ways to learn. We recommend that you follow a 4-step process:
  • watch and listen to the lecture;
  • highlight key concepts in the text;
  • review questions in the test bank; and
  • send AP an email if you have any questions.

Hi Kierson, Technically if you fail the exam 3 times after using one pre-licensing provider you are supposed to take another approved course before testing again. Have you purchased/completed a new course yet? 69% is very close to passing so you don’t have far to go. Maybe give us a call and we can chat some more. 😉

Reply to  Daniel

Hi Daniel, Most of our students end up with both sets of licenses, Property Casualty (PC) and Life Health (LH). Health is also called Accident & Sickness in Georgia or Disability in other states. We usually recommend students get their PC license and then come back and get their Life and Health license. In general everyone needs some form of PC insurance (home, auto, renters, etc.) but not everyone is required to purchase Life insurance. But if the company you go to work for has a preference on what license you get, you’ll get that license! 😉 As far as… Read more »

Hello Lupe, We don’t usually see students have a problem with misdemeanors when it comes to getting their insurance license. To be sure though, you can contact the insurance licensing department (404-656-2101) and go through the steps of getting pre-screened. That way you won’t go through the process of passing the exam and potentially getting denied a license by the state. Good luck!

Hello Ashley, You will usually go to work for an insurance company to gain some experience and then make the decision of whether you want to, or can, open your own insurance agency. Many of the larger captive insurance companies have opportunities and programs for agents to work into getting their own agency. Asking your own insurance agent is a great way to find out how to get started in the industry. They will most likely have some great pointers. Good luck!

Reply to  Rama

Hello Rama, After you have a resident license in Georgia you will apply for non-resident licenses in the other states you wish to do business in. Most states have a reciprocal agreement and won’t make you take an exam, but pay a fee. You will want to check on a state by state basis with the insurance licensing departments to see what their specific requirements are. Good luck! Please let us know if we can help you get your GA LAS license.

Hello Cartresia, You will need a valid certificate of course completion for a GA Property and Casualty course when applying for an Adjuster license (after passing the Adjuster exam). Certificates are only good for 1 year so it sounds like you need to take another approved course to get another certificate. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hello Jasmine, Unfortunately you will need to take another approved Georgia Property and Casualty course to fulfill the Adjuster pre-licensing requirement. You will need a valid certificate of completion (good for one year) to complete the licensing process. We include the specific Adjuster and Public Adjuster material in our GA Adjuster Pre-License Course that covers the extra Adjuster questions on the Adjuster exams. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Good luck!

Hi Debra, I bet they make you get re-fingerprinted but ultimately that’s a question for your state insurance licensing department. It would be nice to save that extra $50 but I think they will push that a new background check is required. Good luck!

Hello Angeleana, I’m not exactly sure what would disqualify you. Your best bet would be to call and ask the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner’s Agent Licensing Department (GA) (404-656-2101 or 800-656-2298). They usually have a process you can go through to get pre-qualified so that you don’t go through the pre-licensing course process only to then find out you are not eligible for a license. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!

Reply to  Derwin Maxwell

Hi Derwin, To sell insurance you would need to also get your Property and Casualty (PC) Producer (Agent) license by passing the PC exam. Our course prepares students for the Adjuster, Public Adjuster and PC Producer exams. Keep in mind, most adjuster companies will not allow you to hold an active Producer license while you are adjusting as it’s seen as a conflict of interest. There may be exceptions on the public adjuster side so be sure to ask the public adjusting company you are going to work for if there are any issues. Good luck!

Thank you for this information. I want to become an insurance adjuster in Georgia so this information is a big help. I was advised that I should also get a property and casualty insurance agent license as well. Is there a course that would qualify me to take both the exam for insurance adjustor and property and casualty insurance agent or would I have to take two separate pre-licensing courses?

America's Professor - DCM

Hi Christopher, Our course would prepare you to take either exam but… most Adjuster can not hold a P&C Agent/Producer license because it can cause a conflict of interest situation. Most insurance companies wouldn’t want you to adjust a claim for them with the possibility of you pushing your own insurance policies on their customers. I have seen P&C Agents/Producers have their Adjuster license (and not use it) but usually Adjusters have to retire or put their P&C Agent/Producer license on inactive status. Good luck!

Hi Danielle, All of our courses come with printed text books. Each course has a course includes section which should also state that information. Are you looking at the Georgia PC course? Please let us know if you have any other question.

I’ve visited your website enough to feel confident that I want to purchase my course through America’s professor. I see to gain the best experience is to work for an insurance company post exam but what if an agent only wanted to work storm seasons. Do you know how or what that process is like? And what’s the best license to have for storm season?

Hello Tam, Are you inquiring about getting an Adjuster license? If so, I think most Adjusters are independent contractor types that work with heavily during storm season in areas hit hard by storms but then the rest of the year work with Independent Adjuster firms. Adjusters sign up to be on these firm’s rosters to be called when an adjustment is needed. You might want to get in touch with an Adjuster to pick their brain about real world application. Terry Freeland at AI Tech Institute might be a good contact for you too. Good luck!

What kind of education background is required to obtain any insurance license? High School Diploma/GED or college courses?

Hi Amber, Usually there isn’t an education requirement to get your license but often the Insurance Company hiring you will have an education requirement.

Hello Yamuna, Pretest questions are just trial questions and do not count towards your score. You will not know what questions are real or pre-test questions when taking your exam. It’s very possible the pre-test questions will not even be covered in the Test Content Outline. It’s very important to know that these pre-test questions will be in your exam so you don’t start second guessing yourself when you see a question that you have no idea how to answer (make your best guess and stay calm!). Good luck!

Are most of the questions from the practice exams, the same as on the actual exam.

Hi Funmi, They are not the same. If you are talking about practice exams sold by the testing centers, usually the questions used in their practice exams are retired questions from the actual exam bank on questions. You may pick up some similar wording and use of terminology though. We use questions purely to verify what students know, and don’t know, content wise. There is a lot of content you can be tested on from various angles so it’s important to really know the content!

Good evening. I already work for State Farm. I want to become a Georgia Adjuster. Do I go ahead a purchase Georgia Property & Casualty Pre-Licensing Course first then Georgia Adjuster & Public Adjuster (PC) Pre-Licensing Course second? Or the other way around?

Thank you

Hello Adreana, Our P&C course is the only course you need. It will work for both the Adjuster or Producer license. If you already have a Property & Casualty license with a certificate that is still good, you could just test. If your certificate isn’t good, you will need to retake an approved course. Please give us a call if you have any other questions as it can be confusing. Thanks and have a great day!

Hello Adreana, In Georgia you are required to take an approved course and earn certificates of completion for each. Most of our students take a 40-hour Property and Casualty and pass that exam first, then come back and take Life, Accident and Sickness. Please give us a call (800-870-3130) if you have any other questions. Thanks and have a great day!

Hi Tia! Sorry to hear that you didn’t pass your exam. If I were you, I’d call your content provider and ask them to go over your fail sheet. Hopefully you can better hone in on what areas you are weak in and hopefully answer what questions you have from the areas you remember. If you are in need of a great Georgia course please let us know. Good luck!

Greetings, I am currently licensed in Florida and recently moved to GA. Aside from the fee do I still need to take an exam in order to get licensed?

Hi Matt, Be sure to call the Department of Insurance in Georgia when transferring your license but I don’t think you will need to retest as long as you follower their transfer procedure. Good luck!

Hello. I am a licensed life insurance agent in Florida. I applied for my non-resident Georgia license in September. I still have not received it after uploaded a requested citizenship affadavit on Sircon and NIPL. Can someone tell me how I can get through on Pearson Vue? I hear Georgia was using another company when I applied and switched over. It is now November and I still have not received the license. Thanks.

Hi Purvette, We have heard about the delay as well but were told they are getting through their backlog quickly. I know they were have fold resubmit all of their documents again. Here’s a link to the notice our students have been seeing: https://home.pearsonvue.com/ga/insurance Good luck!
