1. Schedule and Pass the Licensing Exam

Making Exam Reservations

Licensing exams are provided by Pearson Vue. You can make an exam reservation online, by phone, by fax, or by mail.  Exam fees may be paid with a Master Card, Visa, money order, company check, or cashier’s check.  Personal checks are not accepted.

    Please VERIFY that you have created your web account with your LEGAL name as it appears on your government-issued ID and that your personal information is CORRECT. Contact Pearson VUE immediately to correct the spelling of your name or update your personal information if you notice any errors. It is very important that this information is correct, as it will appear as it was entered on the documentation provided to you after you have completed the exam, as well as on any reports to your licensing agency.

    Appointments may be made up to one calendar day prior to the day you wish to test, subject to availability. You may schedule your exam online or over the phone by contacting customer service.

    What to Bring
    • Your Certificate of Completion from a completed pre-licensing course of study

      • Be government-issued (e.g., driver’s license, state-issued or  military id card)
      • Contain both a current photo and your signature
      • Have a name that exactly matches the name used to register for the exam

    Exam Format
    • Each major line exam is given in a multiple-choice format.

    • When you complete the exam, your score will be displayed on the screen and you will receive a printed score report. The score report will include whether you passed or failed, the overall percentage score, and percentage correct for each of the major sections of the exam.
