All accepted applicants must submit the examination fee at least two weeks prior to the examination. The CLSO examination fee is $300.00. Any
applicant who has not paid will not be permitted to sit for the examination.
Cancellations (more than 30 days prior to the examination
Applicants who send notification of cancellation in writing to the BLS more than 30 days prior to the examination may request a refund of the examination fee. For those applicants who wish to postpone taking the examination, it would be in their best interest to reschedule within the 2-year period of acceptance. Failure to reschedule the examination within this 2-year period will result in reapplication.
If the applicant is unable to take the scheduled examination, he/she may request to reschedule the examination. Applicants who request to reschedule an examination more than 30 days prior to the examination date may apply the examination fee to a future exam within the 2-year period of acceptance, without incurring the rescheduling fee. Requests to reschedule an examination less than 30 days notice prior to an examination date are subject to a rescheduling fee of $50.00. In some circumstances, this rescheduling fee may be waived. For consideration, petitions must be made in writing to the BLS and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
