2 - State Test & Requirements. 

Most states use PSI to administer their proctored state exams. Be sure to schedule your test immediately after passing pre-licensing as they book up quickly. On the right-hand side of the webpage you'll see the following options. You must do all 3 in this order to schedule your test

1- Create an account
2- Register for an exam
3- Schedule an exam

Most states require fingerprinting. It is recommended you complete your fingerprints as soon as you pass pre-licensing. You DO NOT have to wait to complete your state test to do fingerprinting. You can find out how to schedule the fingerprinting at your state's Department of Insurance website.
