West Virginia State Board of
Registration for Professional Engineers
Initial Licensure (PE Examinee)

The table below contains a list of relevant forms necessary for those who have successfully passed the NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FE) and the NCEES Principles and Practice (PE) exam.  If you registered for the NCEES PE exam as a West Virginia exam applicant, you may apply for your first initial PE licensure in the State of West Virginia. If you registered for the PE exam as an applicant in another state, you will first pursue licensure in that state and then subsequently be permitted to apply for licensure in West Virginia via Comity/Reciprocity.

The WV State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers will only accept application forms that print out exactly as the ones provided on this site. If the forms do not print out on your printer EXACTLY as they appear on the screen, contact the WV Board office to request hard copies be sent to you through postal mail. You must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to view and print the Adobe Acrobat PDF files or you may use Microsoft Word to open and complete the Word forms. If you do not have the Adobe Acrobat Reader program installed on your computer, you may obtain a free copy by clicking on the "Get Acrobat Reader" link at the bottom of this page.

Applicants must read the WV Laws, Rules and Regulations for the engineering profession for which they are requesting licensure. Click here for information on the WV Laws, Rules and Regulations for this Board.

Eligible candidates will first register directly with NCEES to sit for the PE Exam as a WV applicant. Once the eligible WV examinee successfully passes the PE Exam, and has obtained the required qualifying experience, they will then be permitted to apply to the WV Board for PE Licensure consideration.
