There are hundreds of RAC testing centers available worldwide. Any of the four RAC exams (US, EU, CAN, or Global) may be taken at any location. Visit the Castle site for a full list of testing center locations.

Transferring to Another Testing Cycle

A request to transfer to the next testing cycle may be made without charge before the application deadline of 1 March for the spring testing cycle or 1 September for the autumn testing cycle.

Requests to transfer to the next testing cycle after the application deadline but before the end of the testing window will incur a transfer fee of $250. Transfers will be allowed up to 10 days after the end of the testing window (10 June for spring and 10 December for autumn). After this period transfers will not be allowed and applicants will be required to pay a new application fee at full price.

Application Withdrawal/Cancellation and Refunds

An application may only be withdrawn or cancelled before the application deadline of 1 March for the spring testing cycle, or 1 September for the autumn testing cycle. Requests to withdraw or cancel an application will not be accepted after this deadline. To withdraw or cancel an RAC application, you must submit a written request to the RAC program office at certification@raps.org. There is a $100 processing fee for withdrawn or cancelled applications.

Exam Scheduling

Eligible candidates will receive a scheduling notice via email from Castle Worldwide 15 days after the registration deadline (spring cycle around 15 March - autumn cycle on or around 15 September).

Candidates should review the information in the confirmation email to ensure accuracy of name and key contact information as this information will be used to access examination scheduling websites and for testing site confirmation. Candidates should immediately notify the RAC Program office to correct any information (+1 301 770 2920, ext. 200, or email certification@raps.org ).
