If you have any questions about your license, please contact the Office of Indiana State Chemist - Pesticides Program at 765-494-1492.

Reviewing Test Scores

When you complete your test, be sure and print your score sheet. You will be prompted 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.

If you failed any of the tests, you may re-take that exam.
