Exam Rewrites

You may need to rewrite an exam if you scored less than 70%. 69% or lower is considered a fail. Re-writes, if permitted, may be subject to a fee and a 30-day waiting period from the previous attempt (refer to table).

Here are the steps you need to take to rewrite an exam:

  1. Find out if you need any additional requirements to write your next exam (see below)
  2. Pay any exam scheduling fees
  3. Schedule your exam

You can schedule your exam by calling Customer Service or by completing one of the exam applications. Please email completed applications to Customer Service

We have scheduled exams at 12 locations in BC, see the schedule here. You can take your exam at any of these locations.
