SCC to offer remote insurance licensing examinations in June

Virginia SCCIndividuals interested in taking insurance agent and public adjuster licensing examinations in Virginia will be able to do so remotely beginning June 1.

The State Corporation Commission’s Bureau of Insurance offers this new online option to address, in part, the challenges posed by the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Exams also will continue to be administered at traditional brick and mortar sites throughout Virginia.

“In addition to promoting the safety of aspiring insurance professionals who take these licensing exams, the new online option reflects the Bureau’s commitment to improving efficiency, innovation and customer service by enhancing exam development, access and delivery capabilities,” said Virginia Insurance Commissioner Scott A. White.

Effective June 1, 2020, Prometric will administer insurance and public adjuster licensing examinations in Virginia. In addition to remote testing, Prometric will operate testing centers in Bristol, Chesapeake, Falls Church, Lynchburg, Richmond and Roanoke. Prometric also will deliver exams at additional test centers elsewhere throughout the Commonwealth as those sites become available.

The online testing represents just one of many enhancements the Bureau is making to its insurance credentialing programs. “The remote proctoring capabilities offered by Prometric’s ProProctor™ remote assessment platform will expand access to insurance licensing exams for Virginians by allowing candidates to test anywhere, and with greatly expanded hours,” White said.

Insurance license candidates can schedule their exam by visiting or by calling 1-866-891-6396. Candidates who prefer to take the exams at a test center are encouraged to confirm their appointment with that center in advance.

Individuals who need to take an insurance agent or public adjuster licensing exam before June 1, 2020, can schedule an appointment with the Bureau’s current test partner, Pearson VUE, at
