I am unsure why it appears so many are in a hurry to take a offical proctored exam. You have 7 months to comply with licensure from July 1 2010 to March 1 2011. The Offical Florida License application will be released July 1 2010 If you are able to comply with the licensing requirements no need for the Proctored Exam and save $100.00.
