Book to sit the exam

ASIC has engaged the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) as our service provider to manage bookings and deliver the exam.

You can book and pay for the exam through the ACER online booking portal during the booking period. The exam is held remotely (via remote proctoring).

If you are a new financial adviser or a foreign adviser, ASIC will need to assess your eligibility to sit the exam before you can book to sit the exam. If ASIC determines that you are eligible to sit the exam, you will be issued with an exam eligibility number, which you must use to book for the exam. For information on how to obtain an exam eligibility number, see eligibility to sit the exam.

An admission ticket will be provided to candidates ahead of the booking date which, together with one form of photo identification, must be presented to the proctor to access the exam.

You can also use ACER’s online booking portal to:

  • apply for reasonable adjustments if you have a disability or other health-related need that might impact your ability to sit the exam in the standard manner
  • access your exam results.

Bookings to sit the exam are only open during the booking period for each sitting as listed in the 2023 exam schedule. Late bookings will not be accepted under any circumstances.

For further information on how to book to sit for the exam via remote proctoring, visit Resources: Financial adviser exam and see the Financial adviser exam: Candidate information booklet and the Financial adviser exam: Remote proctoring information and step-by-step guide.

The exam costs $1,500 for each sitting. This fee is payable when booking to sit the exam.
