Insurance Licensing Testing Now Available Online
Making exams safer and more convenient for testing candidates.
DENVER (July 15, 2020) – People needing to take Colorado insurance licensing exams can now do so online in the convenience of their homes. The Division of Insurance, part of the Department of Regulatory Agencies, has worked with its testing vendor Pearson Vue, so that online tests will be available through their platform, OnVUE.
All insurance licensing exams that are offered at test centers will be available online: Accident & Health, Casualty, Life, Personal Lines, Property, Credit, Crop Hail Adjuster, Public Insurance Adjuster, Surplus Lines and Title.
Online exam proctoring allows this certification testing to be done remotely, offering not just convenience, but safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Candidates need their own computer with a webcam, a reliable internet connection and a quiet room. They are monitored by a proctor through the webcam and microphone to guard the integrity of the exam.
“In this day and age, it’s vital to make everything we do as safe as possible for Coloradans,” said Insurance Commissioner Michael Conway. “Offering our licensing exams online makes sense for a number of reasons, but with COVID-19 still very much a concern, safety is at the top of that list.”
Candidates wishing to access the online insurance exams will use Pearson Vue’s Colorado Insurance testing website and when registering for an exam, choose “at home or office” when selecting an exam delivery option. They will be required to download the OnVUE application, which will prompt them to provide photos of the following: headshot, government-issued ID and the room where the exam will be taken. Please call Pearson VUE at 800-274-2616 or email email@example.com should you have any questions.
Exams are still available at testing sites, however to maintain appropriate social distancing measures, these sites are only operating at 50% capacity. Use the same link above to view testing center availability.
