License exams vendor

The Office of the Insurance Commissioner has contracts with PSI Services, LLC (PSI) to provide insurance license examinations in Washington state.

Registration and scheduling

If you need to schedule an insurance examination or request a copy of your examination score report contact PSI via their website (www.psiexams.com) or call them at 800-733-9267.

You will have the option to take your exam at any of the 11 established test centers or find out if you are eligible to use a new remote testing option that began October 1, 2019.

Remote testing

Remote testing means that you may take your exam at home.

In order to qualify for this option, there are specific requirements. When you register to take your test remotely, you'll need to have a laptop or desktop computer (not a smartphone or tablet). Your device will be tested for compatibility at the time you register. If your device or internet connection do not meet the criteria, you'll have to set an appointment to test at a physical PSI location.

Remote testing is a new testing platform that was released Oct. 1, 2019. During this pilot period for this program, only single-line insurance exams are available: life, disability, property, casualty and personal lines.

If you have questions about remote testing, contact PSI.
