    Passing your Oklahoma insurance license exam is a pivotal part of becoming a licensed insurance agent in the state of Oklahoma.

    In this guide, we’ll break down the general information that you need to know in order to pass your exam, outline the differences between each examination line, and offer tips on both: how to prepare for your Oklahoma insurance licensing exam, and on what to do after you pass.


    Oklahoma Insurance Exam Basics

    General Information

    The State of Oklahoma uses Prometric to administer its insurance agent licensing. This means you can register and book all of your licensing examinations through the Prometric website. Your test can be taken online or in person.

    Each major insurance line examination is made up of bullet-point questions and includes both general and state-specific material.

    The general questions test your federal insurance product and agent knowledge, whereas the state-specific questions test you on the Oklahoma insurance regulations and laws that you will need to know in order to operate as an insurance agent.

    Score Explanation

    You will be sent an exam score report to your email immediately after the completion of your insurance exam(s). If you choose to take more than one exam, you will be sent more than one score report.

    The report indicates the overall score and grade of your exam, including the numerical percentage of questions answered correctly and whether you passed or failed.

    You will also be shown how well you did on each major section of the exam. This is important, as you can use these sections as guides if you need to retake an examination.


    Your Oklahoma insurance license exam cost will depend on the number of examinations that you take:



    Time Allowed

    Life, Accident & Health or Sickness Producer


    150 Minutes

    Property & Casualty Producer


    150 Minutes

    Life Producer


    120 Minutes

    Property & Casualty Personal Lines Only Producer


    120 Minutes

    Casualty Producer


    120 Minutes

    Property Producer


    120 Minutes

    Note: You should focus on one exam at a time. This will likely increase the amount of time and effort you can allocate to each examination and should allow you to feel more prepared when you sit your exam.

    Recommended Pre-License Course

    Before taking your insurance exam, we recommend completing a pre-license education course. This is not a requirement in the state of Oklahoma, but it can go a long way in helping you get accustomed to the information that you will need to know.

    How to Pass the Oklahoma Insurance Exam

    Passing your Oklahoma insurance exam ultimately comes down to your mindset and degree of preparation.

    We have composed a few helpful exam tips and tricks that should help you perform as well as you can during your exam day.

    Get a Pre-License Course

    Even though this is not a requirement in the state of Oklahoma, getting a pre-license course can be incredibly beneficial. These courses can help you get accustomed to the extensive amount of content that you will have to memorize.

    We recommend Kaplan’s course because it offers a variety of helpful features, including:

    • Online exam simulations
    • Live online training
    • Printable study guides
    • End of chapter reviews

    For more information, we recommend reading our Kaplan Insurance Course Review.


    Make Enough Time to Study

    Not leaving enough time to prepare is one of the easiest ways to ensure that you do not pass your exam on your first attempt.

    Remember, there are zero questions on your exam that are based on common sense or critical thinking. All questions are purely factual, and so will relate to how well you understand and remember the content that you have learned.

    We recommend allocating around one to two weeks to prepare for your exam, as this should allow you to go through all of the material at least twice.


    Control Test Anxiety

    Even though you cannot control whether you get exam anxiety or not, you can take a few steps when preparing to limit its effect on your performance:

    • Establish a consistent pretest routine — Acclimate yourself to exam conditions by following a specific routine on each practice exam at home. This should help you feel less anxious during your exam day.
    • Get plenty of sleep — Lack of sleep can exacerbate your anxiety and increase your self-doubt. Make sure you are consistently getting a good night’s sleep in the week leading up to your exam.
    • Study effectively — This sounds obvious, but make sure you are actually tailoring your studying to the exam that you are taking. Remember, there are no critical thinking or common sense questions involved.
    • Arrive early — If you are planning to sit your exam in person, we recommend you arrive at least 30 minutes before it’s due to start in order to get used to your surroundings and have time to check in with your center’s administrator.

    For a more in-depth overview of how you can prepare for your Oklahoma insurance exam, we recommend reading our How to Pass the Insurance Exam article.


    Getting Your Oklahoma Insurance License

    Your next steps will depend on whether you actually passed your exam, as well as on whether you plan to get licensed for any additional lines.

    You can apply for your license up to 24 months after you complete your exam, so if you would like to attempt passing additional insurance line exams before filing your licensing application with the Oklahoma Insurance Department, you are totally free to do that.

    After you have passed your insurance licensing exam, you will need to:

    • Complete a background check
    • File your licensing application
    • Wait for your application to be reviewed

    Have a look at our How to Become an Insurance Agent in Oklahoma review for more information on all the steps that you will need to take after passing your insurance exam.
