About the NAVLE
All aspiring veterinarians seeking licensure in the U.S. must take and pass the NAVLE exam. The exam measures a candidate's knowledge of clinical practices in veterinary medicine. It consists of 360 computer-based multiple-choice questions, and you will have a total of 65 minutes to complete each of the six blocks that comprise the exam. A total of 60 questions are considered pre-test questions and do not count toward your final score. You must answer 55% - 65% of questions correctly in order to pass this exam.
NAVLE Preparation & Registration
You can utilize the tools offered in this course to help you prepare for the NAVLE exam. In addition to videos and printable transcripts, you can use self-assessment quizzes to help you determine what information you are proficient in and what topics you might need to further review. You can also contact instructors to ask questions about any lesson.
To be eligible to take the NAVLE exam, you must have graduated from an accredited veterinary school. In the U.S., candidates must submit two applications: a national one and a state/territorial one. Applications are available online and application fees can also be paid online. Once approved, you will be e-mailed a Scheduling and Admission Permit. The permit contains information for scheduling your NAVLE exam.
