Nebraska Insurance Licensing Exams

Nebraska requires insurance professionals to hold an active license prior to selling, soliciting, or negotiating any insurance business. Passing the state insurance exam is the first step in obtaining a Nebraska resident insurance license. The Nebraska Department of Insurance has contracted with PSI Services LLC (PSI) to conduct examination program. PSI works closely with the Department to ensure examinations meet the state- and nationally-established technical and professional standards for examination development and administration. PSI provides these examinations through a network of computer examination centers in Nebraska and throughout the US.

  • Nebraska Exam OutlinesA good study tool is the exam outlines. Each exam outline is divided into specific topics by line of authority and the percentage of questions covered. 

    The Department of Insurance does not have pre-licensing study materials. You may use your chosen materials to study for the license exam. Many different providers offer exam prep courses, and because of the number and array of methods, the department does not review, approve, or recommend providers.

    To locate an education provider, we suggest you try searching the internet using the phrase "Nebraska insurance pre-licensing."
