1. Will I receive anything at home from the State Board before I take my exam?

  • Yes, you should receive a letter of admission confirming your exam date and time. If you have not received this letter but already have a pre-app date, notify your school so that they may contact the board directly.

2. Does my form of identification the day of the exam need to have to same address as my paperwork?

  • No. You may use any government-issued ID as long as the name on the identification is the same as your exam paperwork.

3. Even though I've notified the post office, will the Board forward my mail to my new address?

  • No. The Board will not forward any mail. You must also notify the Board of your change of address.

4. How long will it take to receive a test date?

  • Unfortunately, there is not an official time frame for receiving a test date and the Board will not commit to a specific period of time after they receive your application. Therefore, be patient, and most importantly, be prepared to take your exam as soon as you apply.

5. Can I use a model that is licensed in another state or has not practiced in California for a long period of time.

  • No. Your model cannot be licensed.

6. Can I use someone else's model or the same model again if I did not pass the exam the first time.

  • Yes. You can use the same model only if the person has not been used as a model within the previous 30 days.

7. Can a current student serve as a model?

  • No.

8. My model has a few blemishes, can I still use him/her?

  • Remember that you must check for conditions, abrasions and diseases. If your model has a condition, you may be able to work on them provided you work around the condition or show precautions when working. However, you should not bring a model with any type of contagious disease or disorder type which may cause the examiner to question the condition and your skills working around it.

9. Will I be disqualified if I cut myself during the exam?

  • It depends on whether you can follow proper first-aid procedures to treat the injury and based on the discretion of the examiner.

10. Will I get my exam results right away?

  • Not always. Your final document (Proof Of Training) needs to be processed by both the Board and Experion prior to receiving your test results. Therefore, you may receive the results in the mail if your documents have not been completely processed.

11. Will I get my test score if I pass the exam?

  • No. You will only receive your license. However, you may request your test score in writing within 30 days.
