The Exam is a four-hour multiple choice exam covering three sections: basic business principles applied to brokerage; traffic management and contracting for transportation services; and legal and regulatory issues. To become CTB certified, you must pass each of the three sections. Candidates who do not pass section(s) may register at the appropriate member or non-member rate to re-take the failed section(s) during the next scheduled exam date. Candidates have the option of taking all three sections together or separately; however, applicants need to be aware that all three (3) sections of the exam must be passed within three (3) consecutive testing cycles of taking the first exam.  Applicants may transfer to the next exam date; however, this will count as one (1) attempt in the three (3) test cycles. The exam is administered four (4) times a year. 

- The examination fee is non-refundable.

- Exam results are scored on a pass/fail basis.

- Results are available immediately following the exam.

Candidates who do not pass section(s) may register to re-take the failed section(s) during the next scheduled exam date. Partial pass scores (pass one or two sections only) are valid for three (3) consecutive test cycles which includes the initial exam. Candidates must pass all three (3) sections of the exam within three (3) consecutive test cycles which includes the initial exam.  If the candidate does not pass all three (3) exams within three (3) exam cycles, they must register at the original price and restart the entire program.
