The MBLEx is administered on a daily basis, year-round at test sites across the United States. Once you are approved to test and receive an Authorization to Test (ATT) via your email, you will use that information to register for the exam date and testing location of your choice. For more information on finding the nearest test site to you, please click on the Locate Test Center button.


Candidates will have two hours to complete a 100-item, multiple-choice examination on a computer. Of this time, five minutes is allotted to a security and confidentiality agreement and five minutes to a brief survey. You should ensure you are aware of FSMTB security policies. See below. 

Weather and Testing Centers
The FSMTB is committed to providing you with a positive examination experience, even when Mother Nature has other ideas. If you are scheduled to take the MBLEx in an area that is experiencing extraordinarily dangerous weather conditions or other similar issues, you will be notified if the test center is closed and your appointment will be rescheduled.

In the event that the test center remains open, you will be expected to attend your appointment as scheduled. You may opt to reschedule your appointment at no cost, provided that you reschedule more than 24 hours before the initial appointment. All other unscheduled absences will be recorded as a “no-show” and all fees forfeited.

Exam Security Video

Exam Security: This video emphasizes the non-disclosure agreement that all exam candidates must agree to before taking the MBLEx. The MBLEx is copyrighted; therefore any breaches of the non-disclosure agreement are potentially punishable in a court of law. FSMTB cannot stress enough the importance of this agreement! Exam applicants are encouraged to review this area carefully to avoid the consequences of non-compliance!
