Common South Carolina Insurance Exam Candidate Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I determine which South Carolina Insurance Exam I need to take?

The type of insurance you would like to sell will determine which South Carolina insurance license you will obtain. There are two main insurance licenses in South Carolina (Life, Accident and Health and Property, Casualty, Surety and Marine). The Life, Accident and Health insurance license will allow you to sell life and health insurance (including annuities). The Property, Casualty, Surety or Marine insurance license will allow you to sell all other types of insurance (including personal lines and commercial lines). If you are only going to be selling personal lines and NOT commercial lines then you can take the Personal Lines only exam.

 

Are the Insurance Exams different state to state?

Yes! Be very careful when preparing for your exam to make sure the material you study is South Carolina specific. There are many insurance schools out there that offer generic study materials. The course you study MUST be South Carolina specific. Our online course was created specifically for the South Carolina insurance exams.

 

How do I schedule my insurance exam?

South Carolina insurance exams are administered by PSI. To schedule an exam, candidates may call PSI toll free at (800) 733-9267 or visit their website here.

Are there any pre-licensing education requirements for my South Carolina insurance exam?

There are no pre-licensing education requirements. However, you must know the concepts to pass the exam. Choosing TesTeachers as your pre-licensing education provider is the first step in preparing to pass this exam.

All of our insurance courses are specific to each State’s laws and regulations.  Our Study Plan will navigate you through all of the tools provided in your online course.

Happy studies!

How do I apply for my license?

For questions regarding how to obtain a license after the examination has been passed, candidates should contact the South Carolina Department of Insurance  at (803) 737- 6095 or visit them online at www.doi.sc.gov. After passing the examination, candidates must apply for their license within one year.

What should I bring to the test center the day of my South Carolina insurance exam?

You should bring your Key Facts from our South Carolina insurance exam prep course to re-read just prior to going in to take your South Carolina insurance exam. This will load your memory for the test. You cannot take anything into the test room with you other than what the proctor provides you. You will be able to leave your personal belongings in a locker in the testing center waiting room. They will provide you with a pen/pencil, scratch paper, and a basic function calculator at the test site. Make sure to write down your cheat sheet on your scratch paper when you sit down at your cubicle prior to starting your South Carolina insurance exam. This will allow you to refer back to it whenever you need to during the exam.

If I don't pass is there any waiting period that applies before I can retake the South Carolina insurance exam?

This computerized exam is scored immediately upon completion of the exam.  If a candidate fails to score at least 70% on their exam, they must pay a reexamination fee and retake the exam. Candidates may only attempt an exam six times in a one year period. Passing exam scores are valid for one year.

Do I have to get fingerprinted?

South Carolina requires that all resident producer applicants complete a background investigation administered by SLED (State Law Enforcement Division). You many request a report through their website at www.sled.sc.gov.

What do the questions on the South Carolina insurance exam look like?

Here are two South Carolina insurance exam questions that come from our materials that are very similar to the formatting and content of the questions on the exam:

Life, Accident and Health

1. An insurance producer selling a Variable annuity whose cash value depends on the performance of an underlying investment account must be registered with:

A. The National Association of Insurance Commission

B. The National Association of Life Underwriters

C. The Chartered Life Underwriters

D. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)

 

Property, Casualty, Surety and Marine

2. A customer has a Personal Auto Policy (PAP) written with a combined single limit of liability of $100,000. If the customer is involved in an at fault accident that injures five other people $25,000 each, how much will his policy pay: 

A. $25,000

B. $75,000

C. $100,000

D. $125,000

 

Answers and explanations to these questions found in our comprehensive South Carolina insurance exam prep online and print materials are as follows:

1. Answer - D Explanation: 

Producers selling Variable life and Variable annuities must have a state life insurance license plus a federal securities license (Series 6 or 7), which are now issued by FINRA.

2. Answer - C Explanation:

 While most PAPs are written with 'split limits', such as $25/$50/$50, which means that the most the insurer will pay for Bl if you injure one person would be $25,000, and the most they will pay for Bl if you injure more than one person in the same occurrence is $50,000. Remember, the per person limit for Bl is within the per occurrence limit. The last number is the limit for PD to the property of others per occurrence, which is in this example is $50,000 for PD, for a total of $100,000, not counting the cost of defense. However, most BAPs are written with single limits of liability, meaning that there are no internal or inside limits. if your combined single limit is $100,000, the insurer will pay up to that amount for Bl and/or PD, so one person could collect up to $100,000. But, if they did, there would be nothing left to cover the Bl of others of PD to their property.
