Your Scheduling Permit

A Scheduling Permit with instructions for making an appointment at a Prometric test center will be available to you online no later than two months prior to the examination. You must print and bring your Scheduling Permit and an unexpired, government-issued form of identification (such as a driver’s license or passport) that includes both your photograph and signature to the testing center on your examination day. If your identification contains your photograph and not your signature, you can use another form of unexpired identification that contains your signature, such as an employee identification card or a credit card, to supplement your photo-bearing, government-issued identification. The first and last names on your identification must exactly match the names on your permit. The only acceptable difference would be the presence of a middle name, middle initial or suffix on one document and its absence on the other. Please contact the Board immediately at (919) 861-5582 if you have not received a Scheduling Permit 5 weeks prior to the test date or if the name on your permit is misspelled or differs from your name as it appears on your identification. Name changes or corrections cannot be made within 7 business days of your scheduled testing appointment. Each Scheduling Permit contains a unique Candidate Identification Number (CIN) that you must enter into the computer to unlock your examination. Test center staff does not have access to this number. Keep the permit in a secure location until your test date. If you do not bring your Scheduling Permit and acceptable identification to the test center, you will not be admitted to the test.

Scheduling Your Test

You must have your Scheduling Permit before you can contact Prometric to schedule a testing appointment. You should contact Prometric as soon as you receive the permit. Prometric schedules testing appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. The sooner you schedule your appointment, the more likely you will receive your preferred test time and location. When you call to schedule your examination appointment, you will be asked to provide the program code, exam code and scheduling number which will be located at the top of the permit. Prometric will provide you with an appointment confirmation number, the test center location and telephone number. Please call the test center for directions. Confirm your testing center location one week before your appointment via Prometric’s website or by contacting Prometric at the telephone number listed on your permit.
