The DBPR has been down due to network issues for three weeks. This causes delays in both application processing and testing. Be patient, the DBPR is working quickly to get back up and running. They are back to working now and processing applications, but there are still a few glitches to work out. Pearson Vue emails with the “Authorization to Test” are taking additional time; please be patient!
It is important right now for everyone to realize that there is no “expediting” of applications by offering to throw money at me, another licensing service, or a school. DO NOT FALL FOR CHEAP TRICKS! The DBPR DOES NOT PROCESS ONE COMPANY’S APPLICATIONS BEFORE ANYONE ELSE’S; THAT IS A FALSEHOOD.
Here is a “copy/paste” from Professional Testing’s website at www.floridaexam.com:
We would like to inform you that DBPR is experiencing network issues. Registrations will take longer than usual to be sent to Pearson Vue and this will also include receiving authorization emails. Once the problem gets resolved, it will take some time for them to catch up. As in the past, you will be notified via email scheduling instructions for Pearson VUE. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please allow 10 business days from the time of registration to receive your Pearson Vue authorization number.
If you are having trouble scheduling your CBT exams with Pearson VUE, please try the following:
1. When trying to schedule with Pearson VUE, it is best, at this time, to schedule online by creating an online account.
2. Candidates are advised to frequently check examination availability through their online account with Pearson VUE as seats may open due to cancellation or expanded capacity.
