We urge you to carefully study the information on this website.



National Board Now Administering the Florida Online State Law Exam (OSLE)

Summer 2015 has been a time of transition in regard to the administration of the Florida Optometry Laws and Rules Examination. The testing location of this exam is in the process of changing over from Prometric test facilities across the country to the NBEO testing facility in Charlotte, NC. Important dates on this time line include:

  • July 31, 2015, the last day that Florida licensure candidates were able to register with Prometric to take the Florida jurisprudence exam. This group of examinees, who registered with Prometric on or before July 31, will be able to sit for their state law exams at Prometric test centers through August 31, 2015. Prometric registration for this exam is now closed.
  • August 1, 2015, the first day that the NBEO offered registration for the Florida law exam. All candidates who register for the Florida law exam with the NBEO will test at the NBEO’s National Center of Clinical Testing in Optometry (NCCTO) in Charlotte, North Carolina. Online NBEO registration for this exam is now open 24/7.
  • August 3, 2015, the first day that the Florida law exam was given at the NBEO’s NCCTO. Typically, there are 8 appointment slots available per testing day.
  • August 31, 2015, the last day that Prometric will administer the Florida exam. Additional information about the remaining Prometric testing is available on the Florida Board of Optometry website.
  • September 1, 2015, the first day that the Florida jurisprudence exam will be available ONLY at the NBEO’s test center in Charlotte, NC. The administration of these exams at Prometric no longer will be available on and after September 1, 2015.

Florida optometry licensure applicants may register on this NBEO website for the Florida Optometry Laws and Rules Examination. While registering, the testing appointment is chosen through use of the online scheduling calendar embedded within the registration process. If law exam scheduling problems are encountered, examinees may call the NBEO (704.332.9565) or may email the NBEO (nbeo@optometry.org).

Fourth-year optometry students who are interested in Florida licensure are encouraged to sign up for and take the Florida online state law exam (OSLE) during their Part III CSE visit to Charlotte.

Non-student ODs who are considering Florida licensure carefully should review the eligibility requirements for Florida licensure before signing up for the non-refundable Florida OSLE.

Additional information about the Florida law exam is available on the OSLE webpage, on the NBEO website. Questions not covered on the OSLE webpage can be sent to nbeo@optometry.org.
