Professional Qualifications

How to book your Pearson VUE exam

A number of our professional qualifications are assessed by an electronic multiple-choice question exam taken at one of the 150 Pearson VUE test centres found nationwide.

You will need to book your exam directly with Pearson VUE, online or over the phone, as little as one working day in advance of the date you wish to sit (subject to availability) and no more than three months earlier. We suggest booking at least two months in advance of your registration expiry date as centres fill up quickly.

Before your registration expiry date you can change your exam date, time or venue (subject to availability). You will need to contact Pearson VUE directly, giving a minimum of 24 hours’ notice online or at least one working days’ notice by phone, so that your fee is not forfeited.

Professional Qualifications with Pearson VUE exams

Important information about booking an exam with Pearson VUE

You will need a valid email address held with us, so Pearson VUE can communicate with you about your exam.

Go to the ‘my details’ section if you wish to update your email. Make sure you wait 2 hours before you book your exam, allowing the system to update.

MyLIBF details 

Your Pearson VUE username and password can be found in your MyLIBF account on the ‘Important Registration Information’ page.

Your Pearson VUE login details are automatically generated when you register for the qualification and are different from your MyLIBF login details. The first time you log into your Pearson VUE account, you will need to sign in as a ‘returning user’. You will then be prompted to change your password after you sign in and ask you to answer some security questions.  

Each time you book, reschedule or cancel an exam with Pearson VUE they will send you a confirmation email.

If you don’t receive this email within one hour, or if any of the information is incorrect, call Pearson VUE as soon as possible.

We are unable to give special consideration for booking problems if a student hasn’t checked the confirmation email from Pearson VUE.

You can sit two exams in one day, however as Pearson VUE’s booking system is unable to recognise this, it’s your responsibility to ensure these don’t clash and you have a break in between exams.

You should allow:  

  • 15 minutes before your exam to check in
  • 15 minutes for your practice session once your exam has started
  • Stated Exam duration
  • 10 minutes at the end of your exam for a survey
  • 15 minute break in between exams


For example, for a two hour exam if your first exam starts at 10am, your second exam should start no earlier than 1pm.

Before your registration expiry date you can change your exam date, time or venue (subject to availability). You will need to contact Pearson VUE directly, giving a minimum of 24 hours’ notice online or at least one working days’ notice by phone. For example, if your exam is booked for a Monday, the latest you can reschedule is the previous Friday.

Please find Pearson VUE’s telephone numbers above.
