Florida Department of Law Enforcement's Basic Abilities Test
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has switched to a Basic Abilities Test which will be administered on demand by Pearson VUE authorized testing centers.
You may now register for the BAT through Pearson VUE's website and select Florida Gulf Coast University as your testing site.
Testing and Assessment Services is transitioning to a new pricing model for online appointments!
In order to make booking testing appointments more convenient, in 2017 our office implemented an online system called RegisterBlast. As a result, we were forced to add a surcharge to all our proctoring fees.
Beginning July 1st, 2019, RegisterBlast will only add a five-dollar surcharge to our proctoring fees for the first testing appointment booked online. After this, any subsequent appointment will not incur an extra cost for a whole calendar year!
The one-time surcharge acts as a yearly membership fee. After the year passes, it will be necessary to pay the fee again if another testing appointment is booked. The yearly fee is not refundable.
