Registering for the PE Exam

Examinees must first apply to the Hawaii board for approval to sit for the exam in Hawaii. Applications must be filed no later than ninety calendar days prior to the date of the exam. Visit the board’s website for instructions on the approval process.

(Note to repeat examinees: The board requires that repeat examinees provide evidence of continuing efforts to complete the licensure process within the previous two years to be eligible to take an exam in Hawaii.)

 After the board has notified you of your approval, register online with NCEES to reserve your seat for the exam. Your exam type, discipline, module, and/or site cannot be changed after the NCEES registration deadline.
