Everything You Should Know About the PE Civil Transportation Exam
Here are a few things you might want to know if you are interested in becoming a professional civil engineer. For most individuals, in order to obtain your PE license, you will need to earn a four-year engineering degree, pass the FE Civil exam, obtain four years of engineering experience, and then take and pass the PE Civil Transportation exam. Our Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) Civil Transportation exam review course will help build your confidence for exam day. This exam is the last step in your goal to earning your professional engineering license.
Before Taking the Exam
Before you are allowed to take the PE Civil Transportation exam, you will need to meet several requirements specified by NCEES. To sit for the exam, you will need:
- A four-year degree from an accredited university or program
- A passing result on the FE Civil exam
- 4 years of engineering experience

Because states’ requirements all vary, we suggest checking with your state board to make sure you are following the right guidelines.
PE Civil Transportation Exam Fees
A fee of $375 will be due to NCEES before you can sit for the PE Civil Transportation exam. Because every state may have different registration procedures, we suggest you check with your state licensing board in case there are separate applications or fees required to register.
