New Phone Number To Make Your Test Reservation – The number to call and make your test reservation with a Pearson VUE Customer Care Associate has changed.

New Fax Number For Questions Concerning Acceptable Translation Dictionaries – You can still call the Examination Administration Unit, but if you want to fax your question, pay attention to the new fax number.

Proper Identification – Candidates will not be admitted without showing proper identification. Your name and address must match what was submitted on your application.

A Photo Will Be Taken – As part of the checking–in process, a photo will be taken of the candidate prior to taking the exam. This photo will be visible on the candidate’s exam result report.

Reexamination Information – This information has changed. A candidate who fails to achieve the required passing score on the examination may be reexamined upon submission of a written request and a fee of $241.00. Pertinent reexamination and contact information is provided to all affected candidates along with their original grade report.
