    I understand that passing the NPTE does not make you Licensed PT in any state unless you have completed the PT application for a state.

    In case, an NPTE passer was not able to obtain a license from any state and decided to apply after sometime. Will he/she be required to re-take the NPTE if he/she is unable to obtain a PT license in any state for a given amount of time? If so, how long is the validity of NPTE?

    (If possible, kindly state a reference and link) Thank you in advanced! 🙂



    How can you be allowed to take NPTE exam if you do not apply a licence for any state?
    (okay…I just found out you dont have SSN)

    Form the FL board:
    Can I apply for licensure if I have passed the NPTE in another state, but do not hold an active license?
    Yes, an applicant for licensure by examination must have obtained a passing score on the NPTE examination within the five (5) years immediately prior to filing of the application.
