Important information to know before test registration
Candidates are strongly encouraged to take only one TExES exam on each test administration date and may only register for exams related to their certification area, as designated by their degree or certification plan. Registering for incorrect tests may result in extra charges and delay the registration process.
- There will be increased security at all test sites.
- Candidates may be photographed and fingerprinted at the test site.
- Candidates who do not agree to these security measures will not be allowed to test
- A current photo ID with correct name and information (matching the candidate's TEAL and Pearson account information) will be required at the testing site. Information in individual accounts must match, or the candidate will not be allowed to test. It is the individual's responsibility to keep information updated.
