GUIDELINES FOR LICENSING-AQUALIFICATION-HOW TO OBTAIN A LICENSE

 

STATE EXAMINATION INFORMATION

Failing candidates may not retake an examination until at least 30 days after the failed examination. Failing candidates are strongly encouraged to evaluate their diagnostic report and study, particularly the areas of weakness, before retaking the examination. The following fee table lists the applicable fee for each examination. The fee is for each examination, whether you are taking the examination for the first time or repeating.

SPECIAL EXAMINATION ARRANGEMENTS

All examination centers are equipped to provide access in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and every reasonable accommodation will be made in meeting a candidate’s needs. Applicants with disabilities or those who would otherwise have difficulty taking the examination should request for alternative arrangements with the testing Center. Requests for any special accommodations should be made in writing, describing the specific accommodations that will be needed, and must include supporting documentation on official letterhead from a licensed professional.

 

REQUIRED IDENTIFICATION AT EXAMINATION SITE

You must provide 2 forms of identification. One must be a VALID form of government issued identification (driver’s license, state ID, passport, military ID), which bears your signature and has your photograph or a complete physical description. The second ID must have your signature and preprinted legal name. All identification provided must match the name on the Eligibility Form.

SCORE REPORTING

In order to pass the examinations, you must receive a score of at least 70%. Your score will be given to you immediately following completion of the examination. The following summary describes the score reporting process: On screen – your score will appear immediately on the computer screen. This will happen automatically at the end of the time allowed for the examination; If you pass, you will immediately receive a successful notification.  If you do not pass, you will receive a diagnostic report indicating your strengths and weaknesses by examination type with the score report.  On paper – an unofficial score report will be printed at the examination site.  This may change by the Testing Center.

LICENSE EXAMINATION

Your studies will be most effective if you study frequently, for periods of about 45 to 60 minutes. Concentration tends to wander when you study for longer periods of time.

 

EXAMINATION REFERENCE MATERIAL AND CONTENT OUTLINE

If a test question answer could differ because of conflicting information in test reference sources, a legal requirement such as code, law, or regulation overrides any other reference. If two legal requirements appear to conflict, the state-specific code, law, or regulation overrides the national one. Information from sources on the test reference list below override information from other sources or persons.
