It costs around $200 to apply to do the CPJE Exam. Once the application has been received it usually takes two weeks for the Board to notify you that you are able to take the exam, the Board's testing center partner will mail you a candidate handbook, the cover of which is your notice of eligibility.
The exam is given on a computer at a testing center. You will not receive your score at the testing center. Your score is reported only to the California Board, which will inform you by mail whether you passed the exam. Results are generally sent in about 30 days.
