One of the reasons you are visiting this site is because you already understand that you must pass the Indiana licensing exam before you can obtain your Resident insurance license.

To register for the exam you may call at or register online. Before you register, you may want to read our informative guide entitled All About Registering For and Taking the Indiana Insurance Exam.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Please note that taking a 180 Licensing Exam Prep course DOES NOT register you for the exam AND it DOES NOT register you for your required Indiana prelicensing education course. Our courses are designed ONLY as exam prep courses to assist you in passing the Indiana insurance licensing exams.

The state of Indiana has a prelicensing education requirement. You must take a course from a provider on this list. Go here. 180 Licensing is not an approved provider; our focus is solely designed to help you pass your insurance licensing exam the fastest and easiest way possible. If you are still having trouble passing the exam after you have taken a prelicensing course from an approved provider, consider putting the odds in your favor by taking one of our premier exam prep courses. They are self-paced, online, and very affordable and effective.

The Following Steps Will Guide You Through The Process Of Becoming Licensed In Indiana:

1)  Select an Exam Prep (Prelicensing) Course to Help You Pass the Indiana Insurance Exam

In Indiana, you must complete an approved prelicensing education course BEFORE you can take your insurance licensing exam. If you have taken your approved course, 180 Licensing provides an excellent course which supplements your approved prelicensing course and which is designed to help you pass the Indiana Insurance exam. To find an approved Indiana prelicensing course, go here.

Please note that many prelicensing education courses are not really designed to help you pass the actual licensing exam, so you may need help getting ready for the exam – and that is where 180 Exam Prep courses come into play with solid exam prep materials.

Here is a rundown of the types of exam prep choices you have:

  • Correspondence Courses.  Often these courses consist of a manual and perhaps some sample questions on a disc that may or may not be specific to your state’s exam. The course manuals are boring, often out-of-date, and do not effectively convey the critical points that need to be mastered by you. They do not use techniques that “teach” you the material.
  • A Live Class.  Sometimes these classes are effective and sometimes they are not – pick one and take your chances. Plus, these courses are often not located near you, and you must miss time from work or travel to take the class. (When we find what we consider a good live class located in your state through our market research, we will list the class here. If you know of an exceptional class, please email us so we can confirm and list the class.)
  • Online Courses with Simulated Instructors.  If you have listened to computer generated voices before, you know that they will drive you nuts after a few hours. We cannot imagine listening to a computer voice for 40 hours trying to prepare for a licensing exam.
  • Online Courses with Real Instructors.  A couple of companies have online classes with real people lecturing. While good in theory, most of these “real people” are simply talking heads in the corner of the screen that you will soon tire of.
  • A Comprehensive Interactive Course That Teaches.  You guessed it! 180 Licensing has spent hundreds of hours creating a manual that is not only fun to read, but that is also highly authoritative and effective We have personally helped over 10,000 students pass their licensing exams using our materials and techniques. Our interactive course materials take you step by step through the critical test points – the materials are “designed to teach”. You can learn the key points at your own pace, anywhere you wish. With our learning tools, you do not need to second guess anything – it’s all there, in one easy package. Passing the exam cannot be made any easier or more enjoyable than with 180 Licensing!

Must Read:  Our National online, self-paced, exam prep courses offered in Indiana do not meet your state’s prelicensing education requirement. They contain national insurance and general state law rules, but do not contain your exam’s specific state law content (about 15-20% of your exam). If you have taken an approved prelicensing education course, have a valid certificate, and still need a passing score, use our materials and supplement with the state law material from your prelicensing provider. Designed by award winning Professor Jerry Furniss, our interactive exam prep materials are excellent for getting you over the finish line the fastest and easiest way possible.
