California Launches Remote Insurance Licensing Exams

September 1, 2020

The California Department of Insurance has launched remote testing for license examinations, designed to provide more flexibility and opportunities to thousands of insurance license candidates in light of existing COVID-19 social distancing requirements and local public health orders.

The CDI issues more than 420,000 licenses for agents, brokers and other insurance professionals, which makes it California’s second-largest profession.

The remote testing launch includes 18 license qualifying examinations and four of the remote license examinations are in Spanish.

From the onset of the pandemic, there has been a significant decrease in the number of licensing examinations being given due largely in part to the testing interruptions, social distancing requirements, limited seating requirements, and other COVID-19 related impacts on the business sector, according to CDI.

Sixteen other states are currently utilizing remote testing for license examinations, including New York, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Colorado.

An applicant required to take a license examination will now have the option to choose to take a remote online examination proctored by the Department’s license examination vendor, PSI Services LLC, through PSI’s Bridge technology.

To schedule an in-person or remote license examination contact PSI at www.psiexams.com or (833) 518-7456.
