How do I register for the exam and how much does it cost?

You register for the exam with Professional Testing, Inc. The easiest way to register is online –

Registering for both the Business & Finance and the Trade Knowledge exam(s) at the same time is the most economical way to register. Each separate registration comes with a $135 registration fee payable to Professional Testing. This fee is just for registration. So, if you register for different parts of the exam at different times, you will end up paying the $135 multiple times.

An additional $80 fee is also collected for each exam part. Business & Finance and all computer-based trade knowledge exams will require a separate $80 fee payable to Pearson Vue. For sit-down trade knowledge exams (like General, Building & Residential), an $80 fee payable to DBPR is required.

Additional Registration Information:
You must register for your exam and pay all required fees no later than 30 days prior to the examination date. Once PTI has processed your registration you will be mailed a receipt. If you register online it is your responsibility to print your receipt at the end of the registration process.

Admission slips will be mailed to all eligible candidates 20-25 days prior to the exam date and are also available online. You must have your admission slip and photo ID in order to sit for the exam.
