More About the Florida Cosmetology Exam
In the state of Florida, the Board of Cosmetology is responsible for upholding the professionalism of the industry. Unique to Florida, the state has the Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s Bureau of Education and Testing, which works with professional boards in offering the high-standard examinations. Florida has partnered with Pearson Vue to administer these examinations.
In the state of Florida, you must be at least 16 years old or have completed high school, and have successfully completed 1,200 course hours to apply to take the cosmetology exam. In addition, you must have completed an HIV/AIDS course. The application fee is $78. After receiving an authorization notice, you can schedule your written exam with Pearson Vue either by telephone or via Internet.
You will then take two separate examinations: written theory and written clinical.
