Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards
The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) is dedicated to ensuring that all individuals who affect the natural and built environment through the practice of landscape architecture are sufficiently qualified to do so.
CLARB’s members include the licensure boards in 48 states, two Canadian provinces and the territory of Puerto Rico that regulate the profession of landscape architecture.
CLARB supports its members, the profession and the public through the establishment of standards of competency and the preparation, administration and scoring of the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.).
Before scheduling an examination appointment with Pearson VUE, you must have already:
- Registered for the L.A.R.E. on the CLARB website, including payment of examination fees to CLARB; and
- Received the Confirmation of Examination Registration email from CLARB.
Please contact CLARB with any questions you have regarding the examination, examination requirements or the examination registration process at 571-432-0332.
