Be sure to schedule your exam session as far in advance as possible to secure your desired exam date.

Step 1: Find a testing center

Step 2: Schedule your exam


After locating a Pearson or Prometric testing center, you can schedule an appointment with either vendor online or by phone.

Pearson VUE Professional Centers

(952) 905-7402 (toll number)

Prometric Exam Centers

The selected vendor will need to know:

  • your name and CRD number (FINRA ID# if you enrolled through the Test Enrollment Services System (TESSTM));
  • phone number where you or your firm can be reached; and
  • the name of the exam or its identifying series ID (e.g., Series 7).

It is possible for you to schedule two or more different exams on the same day, However, you must make a separate appointment for each of the exams when contacting the vendor to schedule the date.

NOTE: It is your responsibility to ensure that your appointments do not overlap. Appointment availability will vary by exam location.

If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, make sure you do so a minimum of 10 business days in advance to avoid any fees. Appointments rescheduled or cancelled within 10 business days will result in a reschedule or cancellation fee.
