CFPS Exam Retake Request

Candidates who do not pass the examination may retake the exam two additional times (with a minimum period of 60 days between the exams). There is a retest fee of $150. Once approved to retest, authorized candidates have up to sixty (60) days to take the exam.


After three test attempts, the individual must wait a period of six (6) months before restarting the application process. This period allows the applicant time to adequately prepare for the retest and prevents over-exposure to the exam. Candidates must meet all eligibility requirements in effect at the time of any subsequent application.


To help you prepare to take the exam again, we recommend that you review the practice test available here.
