Where do I take my Series 65 or 66 Exam?

Customers and prospects frequently ask, "Where do I take my actual Series 65 or Series 66 exam?" That's because while NASAA's website contains all kinds of information, they are not a well-known bunch of folks, and their website is just slightly more user-friendly than software developed in Redmond, Washington. In order to find information for your exams, you'd have to go to . . . then figure out that all the menus are only triggered as "mouse-overs." So, if you lay your pointer on "industry and regulatory resources" and then manage to click the little "exams" link, you'll then be at least half-way finished with your quest for knowledge. If you click on Exam FAQs, you will find the answer to the question above as well as several other important questions. For example, click on Where are the exams given? and you will see that: FINRA is NASAA's contractor for administering the Series 63, 65, and 66. As with other FINRA-administered exams, they are given at Sylvan Prometric Centers." NASAA then points you to the FINRA website, but I'll go ahead and tell you where you can find the "sylvan prometric centers" online, at
Now, you want to actually SCHEDULE an exam? Better leave that nightmare of a process for a separate blog post. Seriously.


  1. One advice that I will give all of the professionals or students taking this exam is to study and prepare well for it. It is not an easy exam and if you have taken a course for it, that would be better. It could help you alot be prepared for it.

  2. Thanks for representing yourself as a sleazeball, 360! To anyone who reads the above: do NOT waste your time with ANY of the crap they're selling. There. Still glad you tried to advertise on my effin' blog, Moron?
