DANB exams are administered at Pearson VUE testing centers across the country. Pearson VUE has implemented health and safety measures, including additional cleaning and social distancing precautions at all company-owned Pearson Professional Centers. Where required by federal, state, local, and tribal regulations, candidates must bring and wear their own face mask the entire time they are at the test center, including throughout the exam. Face masks are recommended at all other locations.

In some locations, candidates without a face mask will be denied testing services, and will be treated as a “no show.”
Read about the health and safety measures at testing centers.
Look up if face masks are required at your test center.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

As of 6/1/21, Pearson VUE is no longer accepting expired IDs at the test center. IDs must be current and:

  • Government-issued
  • Photo-bearing
  • Signature-bearing
  • In roman characters
  • The exact name as listed in your online DANB account
