Per TCEQ Occupational Licensing Rules §30.14(a) and §30.24(b)(2), the licensing/registration application fee is due with the submitted application. The fee covers both processing the application and sitting for the exam.

This means:

  • If you arrive at an exam session for an initial exam (not a re-test) without proof of payment, check, or money order, you will be turned away from the exam; and
  • If we receive an application without proof of payment, check, or money order, the application will not be processed until that payment is received.

Pre-Paying Online for Your Exam

Pre-paying online for an exam is strongly recommended. To pre-pay for your exam please use ePay , the TCEQ's online payment application. Print out your receipt and bring a copy of it with you on the day of your exam as proof of payment.
