(225 ILCS 330/11)
(from Ch. 111, par. 3261)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2030)
(a) The Department shall authorize examinations of applicants for a license under this Act at such times and places as it may determine by rule. The examinations shall be of a character to give a fair test of the qualifications of the applicant to practice as a professional land surveyor or surveyor intern.
(b) Applicants for examination are required to pay, either to the Department or the designated testing service, a fee covering the cost of providing the examination. Failure to appear for the examination on the scheduled date, at the time and place specified, after the applicant's application for examination has been received and acknowledged by the Department or the designated testing service, shall result in the forfeiture of the examination fee.
(c) If an applicant fails to pass an examination for licensure under this Act within 3 years after filing the application, the application shall be denied. However, such applicant may thereafter make a new application for examination accompanied by the required fee and must furnish proof of meeting the qualifications for examination in effect at the time of new application.
(d) All applicants for licensing as a professional land surveyor shall be required to pass a jurisdictional examination to determine the applicant's knowledge of the surveying tasks unique to the State of Illinois and the laws relating thereto.
