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.

If you receive a passing result on the Principles and Practice Exam (PE) within two years of having had a full PE exam application packet pre-approved by the West Virginia State Board of Registration for Professional Engineers, simply forward a copy of your NCEES Exam Result Notice with this form to the WV PE Board office. If it has been more than two years since your last full application packet was approved, you must submit a full new Initial Licensure Candidate application packet, including the $80 filing fee and all required documents outlined in the Professional Engineer Application Materials table above.  A fee waiver is available for military families and qualified low income applicants.

If you are unsure of the “receipt date” of your previous PE Exam application packet, and whether it is within the 2-year window of acceptance, please do not hesitate to contact the WV PE Board office for assistance. 

Submission of this form will ensure that the Board has your most current and preferred address for mailing official Board correspondence as you complete the final phase of the PE licensure process.
