Examination Study Materials

Kansas does not have a pre-licensing education requirement. This means that you can take the licensing examination without purchasing exam preparation study materials or participating in an in-person or online exam study course.

For applicants who are interested in purchasing Insurance examination preparation study materials and/or enrolling in in-person or online courses, organizations that offer examination prep courses may be found online. Neither the Kansas Insurance Department nor Pearson Vue specifically endorses any particular study material or school.
