Apply / Renew License Verify a License

The mission of the Tennessee Board of Examiners for Land Surveyors is to serve the citizens of Tennessee by efficiently and effectively providing a fair, flexible, and positive regulatory environment for consumer service industries. Our goal is to assure that every licensee has met the minimum qualifications prior to being granted a license.

The application deadline for our fall examination session has passed. Candidates who wish to sit for the next TS exam must submit their initial application to our office by January 1, 2017. 

  • The Principles and Practice of Surveying (PS) exam will now be administered in computer-based testing (CBT) format with appointments beginning in October. Instructions for registration will be provided upon approval.
  • The Tennessee-Specific Surveying (TS) exam sessions have concluded for 2016. The next TS exam is currently scheduled for the first quarter of 2017.

Continuing education reporting is now biennial (every two years). Licensees are no longer required to submit half of their continuing education at the end of each year, but must submit their total (30 hours) by the end of each renewal period. The current renewal period ends December 31, 2017.
