Texas Pre-Licensing Course Overview
The course is comprised of three sections:
Section One consists of online reading assignments (we call them units) with a five-question quiz at the end of each unit. The exam tests your knowledge of the material you just covered. You need to answer 4 of the 5 questions correctly to move on to the next unit. If you miss a few questions, don’t worry as the course provides the correct answer, as well as an explanation, and allows you to retake the quiz as many times as you need until you pass the quiz. The online quizzes also act as a great tool to prepare you for the final exam! Section One takes approximately 30 hours to complete. You can also login as many times as you like - progress on your own schedule!
Section Two consists of a downloadable self-study reading assignment that is meant to reinforce the material you covered in Section One. This section takes approximately 10 hours to complete.
Section Three is an online, proctored exam of 150 questions. You must answer 70% of the questions correclty to achieve a passing grade. Upon successful completion, you will need to fax/email us a copy of two affidavits: the Proctor Affidavit and the Self–Study Affidavit. Once we receive the affidavits, we send you a Certificate of Completion for your records and submittal to the Texas Department of Insurance. If you do not pass the first exam, a second exam will be automatically loaded into your student records to try again.
