FE Exam Florida

In order to protect the interest of the public health and safety of Florida, the Florida Legislature deemed it necessary to create the Engineering Registration Law, Chapter 471, Florida Statutes which is comprised of 11 members, nine of whom are licensed professional engineers from various disciplines and two laypersons who are not engineers. This led to the establishment of the Florida Board of Professional Engineers. The Florida Board of Professional Engineers is primarily responsible for reviewing applications, administering exams, licensing qualified applicants, and regulating and enforcing the correct practice of engineering in the state.

All the information for the FE Exam Dates, FE Exam Costs, FE Exam Study Guide and locations for local FE Exam Reviews will be included in the Florida Board of Professional Engineers.
