While registering for the Florida law exam, appointments can be made by using the online scheduling calendar embedded within the registration process. If scheduling problems are encountered, examinees may call the NCCTO (704.332.9565, ext. 2) or may email the facility at (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Fourth-year optometry students who are interested in Florida licensure are encouraged to sign up for and take the Florida online state law exam (OSLE) during their Part III CSE visit to Charlotte.
