This email should be received within one business day. PSB exams are provided through PVs web portal therefore PV must be aware of your intent to complete the PSB exam and requires that you create a test-taker account to schedule the exam in the PV system. The email will contain your PSB ID and a link to their website.

You will need to enter your name and PSB ID as they appear in the authorization to test email received from PV to create your account.
