  3. Register for the L.A.R.E. 
  4. Schedule your test appointment with Pearson VUE.  If you do not receive an email with instructions on how to do this, contact CLARB.

CLARB recommends:

  • Registering for the exam and scheduling your test appointment as early as possible to ensure the best chance of selecting the test center and test date that are most convenient for you.
  • Contacting the licensure board where you plan to seek initial licensure to confirm what the requirements are for becoming licensed.  Licensure requirements may be different than exam requirements.
