If you need to register for the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE), you may use the FSBPT Exam Services website. You may also register for jurisprudence exams for Alabama, Arizona, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Ohio through this convenient online system.

Please read the information below before registering for an exam.

Please note that a 1.6% processing fee, rounded up to the nearest dollar, will apply.

Fees are for the examination only. Your state will charge additional fees for the licensure application. There will also be additional fees payable to Prometric when you schedule an examination appointment.

Before registering for an examination have you:

  • Received and reviewed a licensure application from the licensing authority for the state in which you want to be licensed?
  • Reviewed the key dates and deadlines?
  • Confirmed that you meet your state's requirements to sit for an examination?
  • Notified your state if you require accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act?

Next steps

Once you have completed registering for an examination you will receive an Authorization to Test letter (ATT) (view sample) from FSBPT. The ATT letter is sent when the licensing authority to which you are applying has notified us that you are eligible to sit for the exam. Your ATT letter will also be available online under Status of My Request. Your ATT letter will direct you to contact Prometric to schedule a time to sit for the exam.

Please note: FSBPT will not send an ATT letter until you have been approved by your jurisdiction and your registration is paid in full.

Requirements for purchasing

You will need a Social Security Number (SSN). If you do not have a SSN, you may request an Alternate Identification Number (AIN) from FSBPT. You may pay by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover online.

Statement on disclosure of information

Any specific information that you provide as part of this registration to take the NPTE or to request other services, will be kept confidential by FSBPT and is only shared with the licensing jurisdiction. Any exceptions, such as the school reports, require the candidate to approve such additional disclosure.

FSBPT also collects and maintains information pertaining to scores on the NPTE, licensure information as provided by the licensing jurisdictions as well as disciplinary actions taken by the licensing jurisdictions. Because your Social Security Number is the most accurate reference across all these databases, the FSBPT requests and utilizes Social Security Numbers to identify you throughout our systems. This is the best way to reasonably ensure that your information is not mistakenly confused with someone who has the same or similar name.

For your protection, we do not maintain credit card numbers in our database. Once the card has been processed, all reference to the number is removed.
