The following fees are outlined in Rule 6A-4.00821, Florida Administrative Code.
$225 any combination of subtests
You may register to take any combination of subtests in one test session; however, you must register for the full subtest (both sections) if you are taking Subtest 3: Systems Leadership for the first time. This requirement applies to all examinees, including those individuals who did not pass Subtest 3 prior to January 1, 2015. After the first attempt, you may register to take a single section of Subtest 3 or any other combination of subtests in one test session. You will be required to pass all three subtests, including both sections of Subtest 3, in order to pass the FELE.
Payment must be made at the time of registration using a credit card (VISA or MasterCard only) or a debit or check card that can be used without the entry of a personal identification number (PIN). If you are taking a test for the first time, you will pay the first-time fee. If you took and did not pass a test and want to retake it, you must pay the retake fee. For tests with subtests, taking any combination of subtests for the first time is considered a first-time test, even if you do not take all of the available subtests; you must pay the retake fee for any subtests taken at a later date. If you have any questions about fees or calculating the total amount you need to pay to register, please call FTCE/FELE Customer Service at 866-613-3281 or go to the test fees page on the FTCE/FELE contractor website.
