Maintaining Exam Integrity At RIBO, we collaborate closely with our exam service providers to uphold the integrity of our examinations. This commitment is exemplified through routine reviews of exam results to detect any irregularities. If such irregularities are found, the affected exams will be nullified, and individuals impacted will be promptly contacted by their exam service provider and/or RIBO. When taking a RIBO exam, it is imperative to diligently adhere to the RIBO Exam Rules, as any violation of these rules will lead to immediate nullification, potentially affecting a broker’s eligibility to hold a license.

Our Exam Providers RIBO has established partnerships with the Insurance Institute of Ontario (“IIO”) and the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (“IBAO”), to administer RIBO examinations. We recommend that individuals planning to take an examination carefully review the RIBO Exam Standards applicable to their specific exam. Furthermore, it is vital to adhere not only to RIBO Exam Rules but also those set forth by our exam service providers to ensure a smooth and successful examination experience.

Important Changes to the Entry Level (Acting Under Supervision) exam: 

In accordance with the standards and best practices in exam development, RIBO is introducing pilot questions to its Level 1 “Acting Under Supervision” or Entry-Level exam in November 2023, with 100 multiple choice questions being graded beginning in January 2024. 

As exams are continuously updated, piloting questions provides a critical opportunity to gather statistical data on the questions prior to including them on the exam. Careful considerations have been made to ensure that the addition of these questions does not negatively impact the candidates’ performance. 

The candidates will not be able to identify the pilot questions as they will be indistinguishable from the others on the exam. The pilot questions will not be scored and will not contribute to the candidate’s grade. The exam duration will be 3 hours. 

Learn more about the changes to the exam, in our news release.  

Exam Results

All results will be provided to the candidate by the exam providers.


Re-marks for exams written after April 1, 2021, are only available for Level 2 technical and management exams.

Candidates are eligible to rewrite within the 8-month period following their first examination per exam provider. Candidates after two failed attempts are subject to an 8-month waiting period following their second failed attempt with the same exam provider. Exam results will be invalid and will not count towards licensing if an individual attempts any exam(s) more than twice in an 8-month period with any single exam provider. No refunds will be provided for such individuals.
