What are the exam policies at the VA PSI testing center?

Here are the PSI examination policies you should be aware of before you sit for the Virginia state licensing exam:
1) Only approved items are allowed in the exam room.
2) All personal belongings must be placed in a secure storage provided by PSI. Personal belongings include:

  • Electronic devices
  • Bulky or loose clothing or coats that could be used to conceal recording devices or notes
  • Hats or headgear not worn for religious reasons
  • Other personal items, including purses, notebooks, reference or reading material, briefcases, backpacks, wallets, pens, pencils, other writing devices, food, drinks, and good luck items

3) Smoking, eating, or drinking is not allowed in the exam center.
4) Eyeglass frames, tie tacks, or other apparel that could be used to harbor a recording device will be inspected by the proctor.
5) Once you have been seated and the exam begins, you can only leave the exam room to use the restroom, and only after obtaining permission from the proctor.
6) Anyone possessing prohibited items in the exam room shall immediately have their exam results invalidated.
7) Anyone seen giving or receiving assistance on the exam, found with unauthorized materials, or who violates any security regulations will be asked to surrender all exam materials and leave the exam center.
8) Copying or communicating exam content is considered a violation, and may lead to the disqualification of your exam results.
