Good luck to those who are taking the Exam! You’ll do great!
The NCEES PE Exam for Civil Engineering is offered twice a year. The dates for the next several exams are summarized below:
Spring 2018: April 13, 2018 – Sign up on NCEES before February 15, 3:00 PM if you want to sit for the Exam
Fall 2018: October 26, 2018
Starting in 2018 you no longer need to have your application completed in order to take the national 8 hour exam. You will still need to send in your application in order to take the The Engineering Surveying Exam and the Seismic Principles Exam. Make sure to stay informed on the process of becoming a licensed Engineer in California. You can find more information here.
The State of California also requires 3 additional exams in order to receive a Civil Engineering PE license, which are: the Engineering Surveying Exam, the Seismic Principles Exam, and a take-home exam that focuses on the provisions of the Professional Engineers Act and the California Code of Regulations.

Latest Update: Did you know that the California Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, and Geologists (BPELSG) announced changes to the process of obtaining a California PE license? You can now take the national 8 hour exam without the work experience required for the California Exam!
