Step 2: Scheduling

Once you have registered to take an exam, you may schedule your test appointment online 7 days per week, 24 hours per day. Test appointments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

To schedule a test appointment you must first be registered to test.

After you schedule your test appointment, Pearson VUE will send you a confirmation email listing your test appointment date and time, the address and phone number of the test center, and directions to the test center.

Seat Availability

You may preview seat availability via the link provided on this page prior to registration. When using this feature, you will preview appointment dates and times by searching for test centers near the address you enter.
