Exam Day Checklist

It's natural to feel a little nervous on exam day, but ensuring that you're well prepared helps to minimise these feelings and lets you focus on the job at hand. 

If you have any questions ahead of exam day, please don't hesitate to contact our Member Services team on (01) 645 6670 or memberservices@iii.ie

On exam day

Whether you're sitting an MCQ or written exam, make sure you bring the following with you:

  • your exam permit
  • photographic identification in the form of an Insurance Institute membership card (with photo – membership cards without photos cannot be accepted), a valid passport, or a driving licence
  • a pen
  • a pencil
  • an eraser 
  • a calculator

Anyone unable to present their exam permit and/or photo ID may not be permitted to sit the exam.

You can access detailed exam preparation webinars, including tips for improving your timing and exam technique through iiiConnect. 

Information regarding May 2017 MDI/PDI exam day permits and arrangements can be found here.


Two to three weeks before your exam, permits are available to download in the Member Area.  Each permit details the exam date, time and venue of your exam. You will need to download a separate permit for each exam you are sitting. 

Check that the details on your permit match your exam registration (i.e. the exam module and exam centre) and if there are any discrepancies please contact our Member Services team immediately on memberservices@iii.ie or (01) 645 6670.
