Exam Preparation Tips

What to bring on the day

  • Exam permit
  • Photo ID – Insurance Institute membership card (with photo – membership cards without photos cannot be accepted), a valid passport, or a driving licence
  • Pen and pencil
  • Eraser 
  • Non-programmable calculator

Your exam permit and photo ID are essential, as without them you may not be permitted to sit the exam.
