The New York State Department of Financial Services announced today that candidates for insurance licenses will be able to take exams online starting next week. The exams will be administered by the department's designated vendor PSI.
Until now, candidates for New York insurance licenses were required to take the exam at a proctored testing center. However, most testing centers have been closed for months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The new online option will be available to all candidates. According to a department news release, "Online testing will allow candidates to take the exams at a testing center or any other location of their choice, including their home or office."
Starting June 15, candidates for any of the 28 licensing exams will be able to register for a remote exam slot at www.psionline.com/contact/. They can schedule exams during the day, in the evenings and on weekends. Their computers must be compatible with the testing requirements.
