(Revised 04/1107/12)

Applicants must arrive at least 30 minutes before the scheduled appointment time and may bring only photo identification and the confirmation letter to the site. Applicants who arrive later than 15 minutes after their scheduled appointment forfeit the testing opportunity and fees.

Water is provided for applicants. Applicants must not bring electronic devices such as cell phones, pagers, tablets, or PDAs into the testing room. Handbags, wallets, briefcases, backpacks, jackets, coats, and other personal items are not allowed in the testing room and should be secured in the applicant's vehicle before the appointment. This prohibition is necessary for test security. Applicants are required to sign a confidentiality statement before testing. Any action that can be viewed as cheating on an examination is grounds for denial, suspension, or revocation of a certification.

A DARS DHHS staff member or designee administers the performance test and records each applicant. Once the test begins, the recording may not be stopped, rewound, or replayed, but the testing materials may be paused briefly between each section. An applicant is not permitted to rewind or review his or her performance test DVD. The applicant may not leave the testing room after the test has begun, but may sit or stand.
