EPPP Practice Exams:
Effective, April 23, 2021, candidates can now go directly to the Pearson VUE portal to purchase and schedule their practice exams at https://home.pearsonvue.com/asppb/practice.
EPPP Part 2 Information
ASPPB is guided by its mission to assist its members with their primary responsibility of protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public. In this effort, the ASPPB remains committed to the ongoing development, refinement, and use of a valid, reliable, state-of-the art competency assessment for those individuals that are seeking licensure to practice psychology. Consistent with the above, during its October 2022 meeting, the ASPPB unanimously passed the following motion:
Effective no later than January 1, 2026, the EPPP is one examination with two parts, EPPP (Part 1 – Knowledge) and EPPP (Part 2 – Skills).
This means the EPPP will only be offered as a two-part examination effective January 1, 2026.
More detail on the composition of and rationale for the new exam is available on ASPPB's website. This action by the ASPPB will be discussed at the next Virginia Board of Psychology meeting.

Replacement or duplicate of a final hard-copy license, certification, or registration may be requested through an individual online account.
