Helpful Testing Skills

1. You will have two (2) hours to take each examination. Most people complete each test in less than one hour. Therefore, take your time and read each question and each of the possible answers very carefully.

2. You may skip questions and return to them later. You may review any or all of the test as long as you have time remaining on the clock. If you forget to answer any questions before selecting the "Finish Test" button, you will recieve one warning that you have unanswered questions. You may then answer those questions and then click the "Finish Test" button again to get your final score.

3. The tests have from 30 to 100 questions each and you must answer 70% correctly to pass. For example, on a test with 30 questions you could only miss 9 questions and still receive passing score. On a test with 100 questions, you could miss up to 30 questions and still receive a passing score. If you miss more than 30% of the questions on any given exam you will receive a failing score and then must re-schedule to take the test over again.

4. You may take a practice test as many times as you wish prior to the real exam. Click "HERE" to take the DPR Demo Exam. (coming soon) 

Pass the Test What Next?

If you receive a passing score on the REQUIRED exam(s) for your specific certification, your completed Certified Applicator License will be mailed you from the DPR Office.

Reviewing Test scores

When you complete your test, be sure and print your score sheet. You will be promted by the computer to do this at the end of your testing period. If you passed your test, the score sheet is your written proof that you have passed that specific exam. Please review the BOLD text on your score sheet for licensing information. If you failed your test, the score sheet will tell you which "Content Areas" you need to study.

Failed the Test What Next?

If you failed any of the tests, you may re-take that exam. However, you must wait one (1) day to take it again.
