Inclement Weather


During the winter season, Pearson VUE may need to close a test center due to inclement weather or unforeseen emergencies. You may contact the Customer Service Call Center at 888.790.4892 to determine if your test center is closed.

If an examination is cancelled by Pearson VUE, candidates scheduled for that center will be contacted by Pearson VUE to schedule a different exam date.
