Veterinary Medicine Examinations

Applicants for licensure as a veterinarian must take and pass both the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) developed by the International Council for Veterinary Assessment (ICVA), as well as the Florida laws and rules examination developed by the department.

DBPR offers the Florida veterinary laws and rules examination in a computer-based testing (CBT) format. Candidates who have been approved to sit for one of the following examinations may do so by contacting the department’s examination vendor, Pearson VUE. Examinations are available on a daily basis at testing sites throughout the world.
