Searchers and Closers tests are predominantly essay tests and are designed to take 8 hours to complete. Each test is divided into two parts, a.m. & p.m. The morning is primarily essay for both tests. The afternoon sessions are legal descriptions, drawings, true/false, etc., for searchers, and closing packages, prorations, multiple choice, etc., in the afternoon for the closers. The tests are reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis, so you can be assured you will be tested on the most current and up to date information.
The Basic Title Insurance Handbook and the Booth Supplement Chapters are no longer available in PAPER form. The data is now available on CD, and can be obtained by printing the purchase order form (Hand Book & Supplement) and sending it with your check to the address listed on the form. We are sorry, but paying for it by check is the only option at this time.

Here's some information you might like to review before you apply to take either test. It explains the application process and how grading works.
NOTE: In light of the fact that TRID is new and its likely to go through more changes before the dust settles, the CLT Council expressly agreed to exclude TRID related questions and TRID-type closing packages in this year’s tests.
