How to Pass the Arkansas Insurance Exam


Becoming an insurance agent in Arkansas requires that become licensed, contract with insurance companies and find clients. You need to generate sufficient sales to meet sales goals and to stay in business. But first, you must pass a state examination. State exams test your knowledge and verify that you meet the minimum requirements outlined by the state to sell insurance policies to consumers.

  • Get your pre-licensing materials. Pre-licensing materials consist of books and practice exam manuals that will help you prepare for the state exam. You purchase pre-licensing materials from third-party vendors that are approved by the state of Arkansas on the state's insurance website (see Resources).

  • Study for your exam. Unlike many States, Arkansas pre-licensing requirements are 36 credit hours. Many other States require 40 hours of study. You must complete classroom training and pre-licensing in the state of Arkansas by attending a training center in your area or using state-approved pre-licensing service providers (see Resources).

  • Take your exam. You must take your exam in a state-approved testing facility. Arkansas uses PearsonVue for exam testing, and you must register with PearsonVue prior to sitting for your exam (see Resources). There are testing facilities located throughout the state in Springdale, Little Rock, and Texarkana. There is also a testing center for Arkansas in Memphis, Tenn. The testing fees range from $84 to over $1,000 (as of 2010). The time allowed for each test varies, but is generally between 50 and 150 minutes. Topics will include information specific to your particular line of insurance, as well as state laws and regulations concerning your line of insurance. You will know right away if you pass your exam since the exams are given electronically via computer and transmitted to the state.
