Like the paper exam, RIBO Entry Level (Level 1) candidates only will have access to a digital version of policy wordings during their virtual exam. The wordings candidates have access to are:
- Ontario Automobile Policy (OAP1) Owner’s Policy and
- Comprehensive Homeowner, Tenant, Condominium Unit Owner Package Policy
Additionally, RIBO Unrestricted Technical and Unrestricted Farm Technical exams will have access to form wordings for the forms recognition section of the exams.
Finally, all RIBO auto equivalency exams will have access to the following policy wordings during their virtual exam:
- Ontario Automobile Policy (OAP1) Owner’s Policy
Once you start the exam, you will be able to open the wordings by clicking a link in Question 1 of the exam. The wordings will open in a new browser tab. They will be password protected and the password will be provided to you.
Opening additional tabs will result in a breach of examination rules and may result in the refusal of the individual’s registration application, a suspension of the registration or a review by the Qualification & Registration Committee.
Virtual proctoring has certain technical requirements—please review the system requirements on our virtual proctoring page. Please ensure you can meet these requirements prior to registering.
If you are unable to meet the technical requirements of virtual proctoring, please visit the RIBO Examinations page for more information on how to register for an in-person exam.
