Arrive at your test center 30 minutes prior to the exam so that you have plenty of time to verify your identification and have your photograph taken.
Nebraska insurance license exam format
- Each major line exam is given in a multiple-choice format.
- The exam consists of a general section that covers basic insurance product knowledge and a state section that covers the insurance laws, regulations, rules, and practices of Nebraska.
- The passing score required on the exam is 70. As soon as you complete the exam, your score will appear on the screen and you will receive a printed score that indicates whether you passed or failed, your overall percentage score, and the percentage you got correct on each of the sections. Within two business days, Prometric will send your exam results to the Division of Insurance.
Note: Each exam includes a mix of “experimental” questions and scored questions. The experimental questions are not identified throughout the exam, and the answers may not have been discussed in your education course. Answers to experimental questions will not affect your score.
