Tennessee surveying exam registration
How do I register?
You must first apply to the Tennessee board for approval to sit for the exam. Visit the board’s Web site for the appropriate forms, instructions, and fee information.
After the board has notified you of your approval, register online with NCEES to reserve your seat for the exam.
You will not be required to pay additional exam fees when registering through the NCEES Web site.
NCEES will e-mail you 2–3 weeks before the exam with a link to download and print your exam authorization notice. Read it carefully. You will be required to present this document along with a valid, government-issued photo ID upon arrival at the exam site.
NCEES releases exam results to the Tennessee surveying board 8–10 weeks after the exam date. The board will then notify you of your exam results.
Board of Examiners for Land Surveyors
500 James Robertson Pkwy
Nashville, TN 37243-1146
The mission of the Tennessee Board of Examiners for Land Surveyors is to serve the citizens of Tennessee by efficiently and effectively providing a fair, flexible, and positive regulatory environment for consumer service industries.
Our goal is to assure that every licensee has met the minimum qualifications prior to being granted a license.
In 1967, the members of the Tennessee Engineering Board decided that the surveyors of Tennessee needed their own regulations.
The land surveyor's law, Public Chapter 207, Senate Bill No. 420, was passed on May 1, 1969, and became law when signed by Governor Buford Ellington, on May 7, 1969.
The Land Surveyors Board was created to safeguard the life, health and property of the public.
