Remember that you will not be able to have any bags or sacks that we cannot see through at your seat during the examination times. If you bring a lunch, please place in a clear, transparent bag.

You must notify the Board in writing 10 days prior to the examination only if you cannot take the examination. Failure to notify the Board will result in forfeiture of the examination fee.

Exam Dates

COVID-19 continues to impact the TBPELS Agency as well as our State and communities. Due to the recommendations of public health officials, executive orders from the Governor, and directions from our Professional Board, the TBPELS postponed the Texas April / June 2020 surveying exams until the October 2020 exam date. If you have already paid the exam fee for the April or June exams, the fee will be applied to the Friday, October 16, 2020 exam. If you choose not to sit for the exam in October, then your exam fee will be refunded. Future notices and specific information about the exam will be sent as it develops. The application deadline for October’s exams is July 15.

The Fundamentals of Surveying Exam (SIT) is offered by NCEES all year. There is no deadline for the application to take the SIT Exam.
