Exam proctoring is required for Minnesota Pre-License courses. Each Minnesota pre-license course has a final exam at the end of the course, and passing the course final exam is required to obtain your completion certificate for the course. Minnesota requires you take the course final exam with a proctor. What is a proctor?
According to MN Statute 45.25:
Subd. 12. Proctor. (a) "Proctor" means a person who (1) verifies a student's identity, and (2) processes an affidavit testifying that the student received no outside assistance with the course or examination.
(b) A proctor must be 18 years of age or older. A proctor must not have a financial or other conflict of interest with respect to a student's successful completion of the course or the examination. A proctor must not be:
(1) a relative of the student;
(2) the student's supervisor at work;
(3) a person the student supervises at work; or
(4) a student who is completing the same course.
You can take your proctored exam remotely with our remote proctoring service, or you can use a qualified in-person proctor. Please carefully review the details below about each proctoring method. More information about proctoring requirements is also located at the end of each Minnesota Pre-License course.
We offer remote exam proctoring for our Minnesota pre-license courses. If you would like to have your exam proctored remotely, go to the Minnesota Pre-License course list page, and scroll to the bottom of the page. Purchase the Remote Proctor Fee and Instructions for the course final exam you are taking.
The Remote Proctor Fee and Instructions will be added to your Continuing Ed Express account. This is a short course explaining the remote exam proctoring procedures, technical requirements, and policies. It will only take you a few minutes to review, and at the end of the course you can schedule your remote exam proctoring appointment.
If you have questions about our remote proctoring service, go to the Contact Us page, and select “Remote Proctor Questions” in the subject.
If you prefer to have your exam proctored in person, below are the steps to follow to find an appropriate in person proctor. We are currently not offering in person proctoring at our Minneapolis office location, so we can help you locate a different proctor. Wait to schedule your exam until after you hear from us that we have verified the proctor.
We want your proctored exam to go smoothly so you can focus on the exam, and not on the proctoring process! This is why we have created these steps in order to ensure that you are taking your exam with an acceptable proctor.
