Pearson VUE handles the entire examination process, including the examination fees. The cost of an examination is $42 per exam. Applicants do not need to apply with the Florida Department of Insurance and become authorized before taking the exam, except
bail bond applicants. All applicants, including bail bond applicants, will schedule and pay for their examination on Pearson VUE’s website. Effective October 1, 2012, a new Florida law established a limit of five (5) exam attempts for the same
exam type during a twelve-month period. Individuals who have reached the five exam limit are not permitted to sit for their next exam attempt until the one-year time window only contains four exams.
NOTE: A passing score is valid for one (1) year from the date that the score was earned. If you fail to complete the licensing processing within the one (1) year timeframe, you will be required to retake and pass the examination.
