Scheduling & Locations

Authorization-To-Test (ATT)

Upon eligibility approval, AFP will send you an Authorization-To-Test (ATT) via e-mail which will give you the information you need to schedule your appointment(s) to test. If you do not receive your ATT within one week after submitting your application, please contact +1.301.907.2862.

Please note: If you are registering for a future window, you will not receive your ATT until after the current window has ended.

Scheduling Your Examination Appointments

Once registered for the testing window, the candidate must schedule the required appointment or appointments and take the exam. Exams may be deferred under special circumstances to the next testing window only.  Please see the deferrals page for more information.

Failure to schedule an appointment during the testing window will result in forfeiting your exam fee. You will need to complete a re-registration request and pay the $250 re-registration fee per part in order to register again to take the exam.

Carefully check your ATT. Your first and last name, as it appears on your identification, MUST match the name the test center has on file. If any information is incorrect, contact AFP prior to making your appointment to test. A list of acceptable discrepancies can be found on the Rules/Regulations page.

Appointments to test can be made through Pearson VUE's registration center. For Pearson VUE contact information, please visit You may make an appointment to test at any of Pearson VUE's participating testing centers for any available date and time during the testing window. For the best availability, candidates should make their appointment immediately after receiving their ATT, as test center seats can fill quickly.

Testing in Quebec

Due to new regulations related to the Quebec Language Project AFP will no longer be able to deliver the FPAC exams in the province Quebec after January 1, 2024.  Residents of Quebec may still sit for the exams but will need to travel to a testing site outside of the province of Quebec to do so.
