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

All of the Wyoming 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:

Wyoming question

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 Wyoming insurance exam?

There are 4 basic exams given in most states – Life, Accident & Health or Sickness & Disability, Property, and Casualty. In some states, the exams are combined (Property & Casualty). Some states have a Personal Lines exam for agents selling only homeowner or auto insurance.

In Wyoming, 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.

Partial passes are not permitted. If part of a combination exam (Life Health or Property Casualty) is failed the entire combination exam must be taken again and at least a 70% must be achieved on the entire combination examination in order to be licensed in that line of authority.


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.

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

We recommend that you call Pearson VUE (the testing company) at 1-866-936-7786. 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.


Which Wyoming insurance test is the toughest?

Each insurance licensing exam presents its own challenge. Between Life and Accident & Health or Sickness and Disability, students say that the Wyoming Accident & Health or Sickness and Disability insurance exam is the more difficult. Accident & Health or Sickness and Disability 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 Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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 Wyoming 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.

So this is just the course for practice and to obtain the knowledge needed you guys dont give us our actual license to sell whatever insurance department we get into after we take the exam? We’d have to go to one of the Wyoming locations and pay to take the exam and then get our license from there?

Hello Alana, In Wyoming you need to sign up with Pearson VUE to take the actual insurance exam for the license you want to obtain. Our pre-licensing courses prepare you for that exam, which is primarily Test World information (not how to sell the product). After passing that exam you would apply to the state to get your license then go to work for a company that would train you for Real World sales of their products. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thanks!
