Exam Details

Medical Licensure: As a reminder, you'll need to report an unexpired license that is permanent, unconditional and unrestricted by Nov. 15 of your exam administration year. Please note that training licenses will not fulfill this certification requirement.

Exam time: The exam will take 80 minutes (two 35-minute sessions and one 10-minute break); however, you should expect to spend three hours from registration to completion of the exam.
What to Bring to the Exam: To register at the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown, you will present your valid, government-issued and signed photo identification (e.g., driver’s license, state-issued ID, passport, military ID) at the exam registration table in the lobby. Not presenting appropriate identification will result in cancellation of your exam and loss of your fee. You must not bring the following items into the orientation or exam rooms: writing instruments; suitcases, briefcases, purses, or any other type of luggage; printed materials; and mobile devices.
Lockers: We will provide lockers at the Assessment Center for storing personal items, such as cell phones, keys, coats and purses.
Conduct prohibited at the exam: Candidates who attempt to record, transmit or transcribe any portion of the exam will have their exam invalidated and will forfeit their exam fee.
Video Release:  In lieu of having an auditor present in each exam room, we will be recording all exams as part of the examiner auditing process. Candidates must sign a video release at the time of registration that acknowledges their consent for being recorded in the examiner audit.   
Business attire: Please wear appropriate business attire to your exam.
Exam preparation: To prepare for the exam, please view the candidate experience video to familiarize yourself with the exam experience at the Assessment Center.
Hotel Shuttle and ABA Bus Service: The Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown will provide a shuttle from the Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) to the hotel from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. If you arrive before or after the last shuttle, you will need to take a cab to the hotel. Upon arrival at RDU, candidates must call the hotel at (919) 872-2323 to request the shuttle. We will provide a bus service from the Hilton North Raleigh/Midtown to our Assessment Center immediately following registration. Following the completion of the exam, the bus service will take candidates not going to the airport back to the hotel and will then continue on to the airport. Candidates returning to RDU at the conclusion of the exam can store their luggage on the bus.
Insurance: We assume no financial responsibility for costs incurred with your attendance at an exam or your inability to keep your exam appointment. We recommend that you consider purchasing travel cancellation insurance to cover these costs.
Contact with examiners: After the exam, please do not contact your examiners to discuss the exam or your performance.
