Pearson Vue Testing Centers

Computer-Based Examinations – What to Expect 

The ABCRS is pleased to offer a computer-based format for the ABCRS Written Examination through Pearson VUE testing services. Pearson VUE features more than 200 professional testing centers in the U.S. and Canada. During registration and test taking at Pearson Profession Testing Centers, please expect the following security measures:

  • Presentation of government-issued photo identification, such as a driver’s license, to verify your identity
  • Digital thumbprint scan during on-site registration and each time you enter the testing room to ensure that the same person completes the entire examination
  • Storage of your possessions in a secure locker before entering the testing room
  • Proctor escort into and out of the testing room
  • Testing room videotaping and monitoring

Scheduling a Computer-Based Examination

After your online registration form and exam fee is processed, the ABCRS will mail you an examination admission authorization letter. Upon receiving this letter, you must schedule your examination directly with Pearson VUE by calling 1-800-507-7744 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central Time, or visiting www.pearsonvue.com/abcrs. Make sure the name on your authorization letter matches the name on your two forms of required ID (see next section) – if there is a discrepancy, contact the ABCRS office at (734) 282-9400.

Once you are officially registered with Pearson VUE, they will send you an e-mail confirmation of your schedule including the exam date, time, and location. See www.pearsonvue.com/abcrs for a list of testing center locations, along with directions and parking information.

Note: The ABCRS does not receive your exam scheduling information. You should contact Pearson VUE directly with any questions about your exam date or location.

Taking the Computer-Based Examination

The Written Examination is 6 hours long. Time will also be allocated for a 10 minute tutorial, two 10 minute breaks, a 45 minute lunch and a 15 minute survey.  If you must take an unscheduled break during an exam session, please keep in mind that the time you are away will be deducted from your examination time. Also, all unscheduled breaks will automatically trigger an incident report and possible post-exam keystroke review. Any unscheduled break of more than 15 minutes will invalidate the examination.
