Some states will allow you to take your pre-licensing or licensing exam online (AL, AR, IN, TX, MS) as long as you have some sort of monitor or proctor overseeing your exam.
In the past, this proctor needed to be a ‘disinterested third party’, someone who wasn’t a family member or a co-worker, and the person needed to be present during your exam. This became difficult during Covid so new solutions, like online proctoring, were created.
Online proctoring is essentially the same thing except the proctor is watching you take your exam online through your computer video camera instead of in person. We’ve partnered with Proctor Free to offer this service to our students at no additional cost. You do not have to use online proctoring for the state exams where it is offered – except in Alabama where it is the only option. Students in the other pre-licensing states can choose to test with a standard in-person proctor or use our online proctoring system.
Once you finish your course and get to the exam, our online classroom will give you a few basic guidelines for taking the exam and walk you through simple steps to set up the online proctoring system.
This allows you to proceed with the exam on your own time without needing to schedule an in-person proctor to oversee your test…and it’s all at no extra charge to you.
