Problems with Registration

If you have trouble registering, or if the error message says your information does not match, we’ll need to confirm the following.
• Date of Birth
• Social Security Number
• E-mail Address
• Legal Name

Note: The information you give the state in the above fields must match exactly what you give us. If the information does not match, you will not be able to register for any tests.

If the test you are registering for does not appear for selection, you will need to contact Texas Teachers to check what tests you have been approved to take. If the test date you want does not appear for the certification exam you have selected, then that location is full and you will need to choose another location or date.
