Exam cancellations | See the latest status update for January exams.  

Exam scheduling | Exam scheduling is available for exams in Vancouver and some locations outside of Metro Vancouver. At this time, we are actively exploring alternatives for in-person LLQP exams, such as online exams, and will provide further information if other options become available.  (Updated January 15, 2021)


Completion of the ​LLQP (Life Licence Qualification Program) is a required certification if you or your organization want to sell life insurance products in British Columbia.

We are accepting and reviewing new registrations to write the LLQP exam. Exam scheduling and new exam dates are available in limited locations due to the provincial health restrictions now in place.

We are also actively exploring alternatives to in-person exam sittings such as online options. Please sure to check our website frequently for the most recent information.

More information

About the LLQP Exam

The LLQP Exam Information Guide provides information you need to know about exam registration, scheduling, preparing for exam day, and taking the exam.


The LLQP exam is open-book, and during exam sessions, examinees can access the standardized exam preparation material on an electronic tablet. It is the examinee's responsibility to review the user guide and video prior to the exam date, as instructions will not be provided at the exam session.

If you have further questions after reviewing the information in this section, please contact us.

How to Register for the LLQP Exam


Registration for the LLQP Exam is available through the Insurance Council's online portal. To access exam registration, you will need to login with a portal account. 

If you already have a portal account, or have previously written the LLQP exam in BC, you can log into the portal with your user name and password.  You can then select "Register/Manage my LLQP exams" from the main menu. 

First time registering to write the LLQP exams with Council? You will first need to create a portal account here. Please note, you will need to enter your legal name exactly as it appears on your government issued photo ID. You must also add a Residence Address to your account.

Registration Process

Once you have created an account and/or logged into the online portal:

  1. Click on "Register/Manage my LLQP exams" then "Register for Exams"

  2. Follow the steps to enter your exam registrant information and upload a clear copy of your government issued photo ID (i.e., Driver’s Licence, Permanent Resident Card or Passport)

  3. Once you have completed and submitted your exam registrant information, it will be reviewed by our Exams staff team. Please note it may take up to three business days to review and approve your registration. 

  4. You will receive a verification email from Council's Examinations department once your exam registrant information has been reviewed and approved; or if any additional information is required, you will receive a request for that information via email.

  5. Once you have received the verification email from Council's Examinations department, you may then login to the online portal to schedule and pay for your exams online.

If you have not received any correspondence from the Insurance Council within 3 business days, please contact our Exams Team at 604-695-2006 or via email at examinations@insurancecouncilofbc.com to follow up on the status of your exam registration.

Exam Safety Protocols for COVID-19

Providing a safe exam environment is our priority. We have put in place measures to protect our examinees, staff and proctors on exam day:
  • Examinees must agree to and sign a liability waiver and assumption of risk document to write the exams
  • Proctors and staff must wear gloves and facial masks covering their nose and mouth on exam day
  • Examinees must wear facial masks covering their nose and mouth to enter and write their exam. Otherwise, they will not be permitted to write the exam. 
    • A note on Masks: non-medical, N95, and double layer cloth masks are acceptable; however, we do not permit bandanas, gaiters, or masks with exhalation valves to be worn in exam sittings. A good mask has a double layer of washable, breathable fabric that helps keep the wearer from spreading potentially infected droplets into the air. A bandanna tied around the face does not work as well as a mask because it is open at the bottom. A gaiter (a tube of thin, stretchy knit fabric that can be worn around the neck and pulled up to cover the nose and mouth) is usually too thin to provide adequate protection. Likewise, masks with exhalation valves can allow your droplets to escape into the air.
  • Examinees who appear unwell or exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 on exam day will not be permitted to write the exam
  • Examinees will be seated at least 2 meters/6 feet apart
  • Examinee tables, chairs, and exam materials will be disinfected before and after each examinee use 

Should you have questions about these protocols, please contact our Exams Team via email at examinations@insurancecouncilofbc.com or call 604-695-2006.
