IMPORTANT NOTES ABOUT DATES AND DEADLINES
Make sure you register and pay for the exam before the registration deadline passes. Your jurisdiction cannot approve your registration for the NPTE and you will not receive an Authorization to Test until your registration AND payment are received by FSBPT.

Candidates who are unable to test on the date they were scheduled due to a problem with the Prometric testing center (power outage, computer malfunction, etc.) should call FSBPT to be rescheduled as soon as possible.
