Examination Scheduling Information

Before you can schedule your exam with Pearson VUE, you must first be authorized by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Authorization is dependent on your status with your training facility. You will not be able to schedule your exam until Pearson VUE receives an authorization file for you from FDLE. Once you are authorized, you will then need to create a Web account to schedule your exam online or call Pearson VUE to request assistance with setting up your account and scheduling your exam. Please reference the FDLE Registration Guide and candidate handbook on this page for additional information regarding creating your Web account and scheduling your exam.

Appointments may be made up to one calendar day prior to the day you wish to test, subject to availability.
