Once you pass the NCEES FE exam, you never have to take it again. Thatís how it is here in Texas, at least. Iím not positive that some other states wouldnít want you to take it again after a significant amount of time had passed. None of them would make you re-take it after only 8 years, though. Iíd suggest taking it as soon as you qualify. Based on what we know about it, the closer that exam is to your education, the more successful youíll be.
