  • In order to pass you must answer 48 out of 60 questions to pass.
  • If you do not pass, the exam can be administered twice in one day at the proctors availability.
  • The test is administered online (and thus requires basic computer knowledge); no paper or pencils are necessary.
  • Upon passing the library proctor will issue a validation sticker which will be placed on the back of the Type 600 Permit.
  • This is a temporary certificate, and a permanent will be mailed in 2 to 3 weeks.

If cheating is suspected or seen the test will be stopped and you may not return for 14 days to re-take the exam and your name will be reported to TWRA to discipline at their discretion.
