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.
