Schedule an Exam -- Instructions

Pearson VUE maintains more than 200 professional test centers in the United States. At Pearson VUE test centers, you will be required to show two (2) forms of ID for admission to the test center. Both IDs must show your signature, and one ID must be a currently valid, official government-issued photo ID. Examples of acceptable forms of ID include driver's licenses, passports or state-issued photo IDs. An example of a second acceptable ID would be an employee ID, ATM card, school ID or credit card.

Appointments can be made by phone or online. Note that web appointments require that you establish an account at the Pearson VUE website (This is a seperate account from an account on this site).

Rescheduling requires contacting Pearson VUE to first cancel an existing appointment at least 24 hours (one business day) prior to the scheduled appointment. For example, to cancel or reschedule an appointment on a Tuesday at 9:30am and Monday is a holiday, you must contact VUE before 9:30am on the preceding Friday.

The appointment may then be rescheduled with Pearson VUE. Candidates failing to appear for an appointment forfeit their exam fee.

Pearson Vue will assess a $10 fee for each canceled or rescheduled appointment.
