If you don’t want to register for a practice exam and are confident that you’ll pass your exam in one attempt, skip the value package and simply register for your exam alone.

Please note that value packages cover registration costs for two exams. If you use your free retake, you’ll need to cover your Pearson VUE seat fee. Refunds and exam payment plans are not available for UExcel value packages.
