Exam Review/Playback Update

Exam Reviews/Playbacks are only available for exams taken at a test center. Exam Review/Playback functionality is not applicable to exams delivered online through OnVUE.

As a business improvement initiative and to provide better controls over exam reviews/playbacks; candidates that want to schedule a retake within 21 days of an exam review must contact Pearson VUE customer service for an override. If an override is applied, the exam review comments will not be subject to further formal review by DBPR’s Subject Matter Experts.

Candidates have the ability to schedule a retake after an exam review online themselves outside the 21 day exclusion time period.
