FTCE Fee Waiver

On April 1, 2020, the Florida Department of Education provided candidates with the opportunity to use a voucher to register and schedule to take the Florida Teacher Certification Examinations (FTCE) free of charge. At this time, the voucher limit has been reached, and the voucher code will expire at 11:59 p.m. eastern time on May 19, 2020. Full test fees will apply for any future registrations.

Test Center Availability in Florida

Florida-based Pearson VUE-owned test centers have reopened as of April 22, 2020.

Many of our college and university partner sites remain closed and are working closely with their institution leadership to determine when they will reopen.

For your health and safety at test centers:

In support of your health and safety and the health and safety of our employees, we will follow recommendations from the CDC and World Health Organization for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, we ask that candidates comply with the health and safety guidelines outlined on Pearson's COVID-19 webpage opens in a new window. We strongly encourage candidates to review these guidelines before their test appointment for the most up-to-date information.

To schedule or reschedule a test appointment:

Please note that only test centers that are open at the time that you attempt to schedule your appointment will appear in the seat availability tool and during the scheduling process.

If you are ill on the day of your test appointment:

Do not report to the test center. If you miss your appointment due to illness, please review the Absentee/No Show policy, which includes information about requesting a transfer of your test registration.

If you prefer, you may withdraw your registration for a full refund.
