Online Practice Exam and Assessment Tool (PEAT)

PT and PTA PEAT have been revised to reflect the new NPTE content outlines that go into effect in 2013. If you purchased PEAT prior to the October PTA exam and still have access, your version will be unchanged.



General Information
PEAT (the Practice Exam and Assessment Tool) was developed by the FSBPT to help candidates prepare for the National Physical Therapy Examination (NPTE). PEAT gives candidates an opportunity to take a timed, computer-based, multiple-choice examination that closely resembles the National Physical Therapy Examination.

Through this purchasing interface you can buy PEAT for PTs and PTAs. You can also purchase extensions and printed supplemental materials.

Prior to purchasing PEAT, please view the Frequently Asked Questions at www.fsbpt.org/PEAT. The FAQs contain important information including computer specifications required to use PEAT.

PT PEAT - $90 (60 day access)
PTA PEAT - $90 (60 day access)
15 Day Extension - $45
Printed Supplemental Materials - *$50

Please note that a 1.6% processing fee, rounded up to the nearest dollar, will apply.

*When you purchase PEAT you have access to download and print the supplemental materials free of charge. If you prefer to have FSBPT send you a printed version, there is a $50 fee. Only candidates who have registered for PEAT can purchase the supplemental materials. Refunds will not be issued after the supplemental materials have been mailed.

What to Expect
The PEAT registration process is a six-step process that you can complete online through this website. You will be asked to enter certain personal information and select the product(s) you wish to purchase.

There is only one version of PEAT. If you purchase PEAT a second time you will receive the same two practice exams.

When you purchase PEAT you will have sixty (60) days access to the online product. The countdown on your access time does not begin until you actually start taking the practice examination. Once you log onto the web site and start your first practice exam, we cannot refund your money.

PEAT is an online product only.

Next Steps
Once you have completed registering and have paid in full for PEAT, you will receive an e-mail confirming your purchase and providing you with a product key and instructions on how to access this service. FSBPT will not send a confirmation e-mail until your registration is paid in full. Your product key and instructions will also be available online under Status of My Request.

Requirements for Purchasing
You will need a Social Security Number (SSN). If you do not have a SSN, you may request an Alternate Identification Number (AIN) from FSBPT. To obtain an AIN you must download an application form from the FSBPT website, fill out the application and mail it to FSBPT. Your registration cannot be processed without either a SSN or AIN. Note to Canadian citizens: You may NOT use your Canadian SSN for registration purposes. If you do not have a US SSN you will need to request an AIN.

During the registration process, you will be asked to select a method of payment. You may pay by Visa or MasterCard online.

You will also be asked to provide an e-mail address where we can send you your product key and instructions on how to access PEAT.

Contact Information for Customer Support
In the event you have difficulty completing your registration you may obtain assistance by contacting FSBPT at (703) 739-9420 and select Option 3.

Statement on Disclosure of Information
Any specific information that you provide as part of this registration to take the NPTE or to request other services, will be kept confidential by FSBPT and is only shared with the licensing jurisdiction. Any exceptions, such as the school reports, require the candidate to approve such additional disclosure.

FSBPT also collects and maintains information pertaining to scores on the NPTE, licensure information as provided by the licensing jurisdictions as well as disciplinary actions taken by the licensing jurisdictions. Because your Social Security Number is the most accurate reference across all these databases, the FSBPT requests and utilizes Social Security Numbers to identify you throughout our systems. This is the best way to reasonably ensure that your information is not mistakenly confused with someone who has the same or similar name.

For your protection, we do not maintain credit card numbers in our database. Once the card has been processed, all reference to the number is removed.

By clicking on "Buy Now" you confirm that you have read, understand, and agree to the conditions set forth above.
