Effective October 1, 2023, the examinations will be referenced to the
2023 NEC Code Book
Electricians who fail the Texas electrical exam are able to retake the test as many times as they need until they pass. This may not be the most economical way to get your licence, but it can be done. PSI exams will allow you to sign up for your retest as early as 3 days after your last exam.
Here are some things to keep in mind when you attempt to retake your electrical test:
You will have to pay for the exam each time you take it.
This is why we strongly suggest you invest in a study program. A study program will help you learn what you need in the electrical exam and you have a greater chance of passing the test on the first attempt.
There is no waiting period.
You can reschedule you test as soon as you want. We strongly suggest you take the test within the next 7 days while the test is still fresh in your head.
Keep your Score Report from the first failed exam.
This will break down the categories of the questions you missed which will help tell you what to study for the retake.
If you didn’t take a prep course or practice exam before, now is the time to do it. Jade Learning has an electrical practice exam program that has questions like in the exam and also breaks down your results just like the test. This way you’ll see your improvement before you go sit for the real deal.
Finally, don’t get frustrated and don’t quit. I’ve seen guys just a point short of passing and I know it’s frustrating but hang in there. You’ll get it.
You can always find all of the rules and procedures on PSI and TDRL.
Best of luck!
