How can I find out where a test center is located?
www.psiexams.com has a list of testing centers where you may take your exam. Be sure to choose your Licensing Authority/Sponsor name from the drop down menu for an accurate list. Your exam’s Candidate Information Bulletin will also have a list of locations where your exam is administered.

Many test appointments can be cancelled and/or rescheduled through the PSI Web site. Typically we allow you to schedule 1 day prior if space is available and we require 2 business days to reschedule your exam without penalty. Check your Candidate Information Bulletin for your program’s particular rescheduling rules.
How long will it take for my eligibility or authorization to test to be downloaded into the system so that I can schedule an appointment to test?
Please note that not all Licensing Authorities/Sponsors require eligibility to take their exam, therefore, you may be able to test immediately. For those programs requiring eligibility, the files are downloaded and test appointment scheduling is available within 24-48 hours of receiving authorization from the licensing authority.
Why would my local test center tell me that they don’t schedule appointments?
The testing centers’ primary purpose is to administer exams. Candidates should visit our website or contact our Candidate Service Center to schedule an exam appointment. Test center staff are not able to schedule appointments for their test center under any circumstances.
How do I obtain the appointment date and time I want to take my exam?
When you go to our website or speak to a representative from our Candidate Service Center you will be asked to provide your preferred test date. The first available time slot on that date will be offered to you. If your preferred appointment date is not available, a Candidate Service Center representative will work with you to identify a convenient appointment date.
My appointment is scheduled for today, however the testing center is closed. What should I do?
In rare cases weather or an emergency forces a test center closure. If this happens you will be contacted by the PSI rescheduling department within 24-48 hours to reschedule your appointment. We apologize for any inconvenience. You may also call 800-733-9267 for information. Real time site information is posted at psiexams.com
How far in advance must you schedule an exam?
Exam sessions are available at least 6 weeks in advance. You will have the best opportunity to schedule your preferred date if you contact us 4-6 weeks prior to your preferred date.
When should I plan to arrive at the testing center?
You should arrive at the testing center at least 30 minutes before the test is scheduled to begin.
What type of identification must I bring to the test center?
ID requirements vary by Licensing Authority or Sponsor. It is the examinee’s responsibility to review the ID requirements for the exam you are taking before making your appointment. Please refer to your Candidate Information Bulletin for their specific ID requirements.
Can my exam be taken on my PC, or do I have to go to one of your centers to test?
All exams must be administered at a PSI Test Center unless specifically mandated by your exam’s Licensing Authority/Sponsor.
Are there lockers? Can I keep my purse with me?
Because the only item allowed into the testing area is identification, we encourage test takers to leave personal items at home or locked securely in your car’s trunk.
I am on medication. May I bring drinks/food into the testing room?
Food and drinks are not permitted in the testing rooms. Some of the exams that we administer do allow you to take a break. The exams that do not offer break time will allow you to leave the testing area to get a drink or take medication. However, the amount of time designated for that exam is not stopped when you are away from your computer.
How crowded are the testing rooms?
I need to be in a quiet environment.
A typical Test Center seats 10 candidates. Test center proctors provide a quiet and comfortable environment for all test takers. Noise reducing earplugs are available for an even quieter environment. Your Test center proctor would be glad to assist you if you have questions.
After the Test
When will I receive my score reports?
In most cases, candidates receive their score report immediately after their test is completed. Score reporting timeframes may vary depending on exam specific program rules. Please check with your exam Licensing Authority or Sponsor for complete information.
How can I check the status of my certification? Why haven’t I received it yet?
To obtain status information, you must contact your Licensing Authority/Sponsor directly.
