Series 66 - Uniform Combined State Law Exam

Passing the Series 66 exam fulfills the requirements for both the Series 63 exam and Series 65 exam. However, the candidate must also pass the Series 7 - General Securities Representative Exam. The Series 66 exam qualifies a candidate to register with states as both securities agent (registered representative), and investment adviser (IA) or investment adviser representative (IAR).
