Applying for Licensure as a Traffic Engineer:

NEW APPLICANTS
Review all applicable laws and regulations to confirm that you meet the qualifying educational and experience requirements before you file an application with the Board.  The Traffic Engineer exam is administered once a year during a two-week window.  Check the Exam Schedule for the next exam window.
