Exam & Study Information
 
In order to become a title agent in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, you need to take an exam and score a 70% or higher.  The examination contains 60 questions and is limited to one hour.  For an outline of the exam topics, click here.

To register to take the examination, click here.

Thomson Prometric manages the examination process and has seven testing locations throughout the state of Pennsylvania, but also has national testing locations; therefore making it possible for you to take the PA exam in another state.  For addresses, phone numbers and directions to PA click here.

It is also strongly recommended that you bring a credit card with you (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) since you will be able to apply for your license at the testing center through Sircon once you pass your exam.

Once you have passed your exam, you are now eligible to apply for your producer license. You should apply electronically through Sircon to expedite the licensing process. You will be given the opportunity to submit an electronic application at the testing center. During the electronic application process, you will also pay the fingerprinting fee which will enable you to submit your fingerprints before leaving the exam testing center.
