Helpful Tips for Insurance Testing in Montana
Registering for a Connole-Morton class does NOT register you with the PearsonVue testing service. Please register for the exam as soon as possible. It is highly recommended that you plan to take the PearsonVue exam on the Saturday that immediately follows Connole-Morton Insurance School’s Wednesday-Friday prelicensing class. Individuals interested in taking insurance licensing exams need the following:
- The test fee for Life & Health exams 01 and 02 is $68. The test fee for Limited Lines exam 29 is $68. Fees must be paid at the time of exam registration by debit card, credit card or electronic check.
- Two forms of signature identification, preferably one with a photograph, such as a driver’s license.
- The confirmation number you were given when you reserved a seat for the Saturday licensing exam. You MUST reserve a seat with the PearsonVue testing service NO LATER than the Tuesday before the PearsonVue Saturday exam date you have chosen. PearsonVue’s special registration phone number is 1-800-274-8906.
- You may cancel your reservation no later than the Monday before your scheduled Saturday examination date. Failure to appear for your reserved Saturday test will result in your being charged double the test fee when you reschedule to take the exam.
- You do NOT need to apply for your insurance license before you take a licensing course or before you test with the PearsonVue testing service. Please contact your recruiting insurance company for advice on when and how to complete your licensing application. If, after contacting your company, you still have questions about licensing, contact the Insurance Commissioner’s Office at (406) 444-2040.

Effective July 10, 2004, all candidates for licensure must be fingerprinted before they can receive a license. PearsonVue offers digital fingerprinting services at the following test centers:
Fingerprints will be printed on the required FD-258 card, which PearsonVue will then submit directly to the Department of Justice. There are many advantages to electronic fingerprinting over wet ink fingerprinting, as electronic fingerprinting is:
- Convenient – it is available at the PearsonVue test center immediately after candidates take the examination.
- An accurate, efficent, and clean process, with no wet ink or residue.
- A way of producing distinct, high quality prints.
- In accordance with existing FBI and IAFIS requirements for live-scan imaging and therefore has a low rejection rate.
Candidates who choose to be digitally fingerprinted must pay a $48.75 fee (which includes the Department of Justice fee) at the time of reservation, and must request examination level “FP”.
NOTE: Fingerprinting is NOT required for Adjuster or Consultant applicants.
Payment for fingerprinting will be accepted at the test center.
