About the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE)

The FSBPT develops and administers the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE) for physical therapists and physical therapist assistants. All 50 states and 3 additional jurisdictions use the NPTE as one factor in the licensure or certification of physical therapist and physical therapist assistants. Each licensing authority has established its own criteria for eligibility to sit for the PT and PTA examinations. You should review the materials distributed by the licensing authority, to which you intend to apply for licensure or certification, to determine if you have met that authority's eligibility requirements.

A current examination may only be used for administration to bona fide candidates for initial licensure, re-licensure, or to candidates who are not licensed in a jurisdiction and do not have a qualifying exam score for that jurisdiction.

The computer-based PT and PTA examinations are administered by FSBPT through Prometric. FSBPT scores your examination and then transmits the score to the licensing authority.

For more information about the NPTE exam, please visit the NPTE section of the FSBPT Website.
