Registered Representatives of Broker-Dealers May No Longer Use Form U10 to Open Series 65 Exam

November 06, 2010

If a registered representative of a broker-dealer wants to open a Series 65 exam window, it is the understanding of RIA Compliance Consultants that the registered representative must now go through his or her broker-dealer’s Web CRD account by using Form U4.  This could create an additional challenge for certain registered representatives preparing to depart a broker-dealer. 

The Form U10 is the Uniform Examination Request used for candidates, who are not employed by or associated with a broker-dealer, to open up a window to take a Series 65 examination.  In the past, an individual associated with a broker-dealer could use the Form U10 to open an exam widow without going through his or her broker-dealer’s Web CRD account.  However, now an individual currently associated with a broker-dealer must file the Form U4 through the broker-dealer’s Web CRD to open the Series 65 exam window.
