The California Psychology Law and Ethics Examination (CPLEE) is required for psychologists who want to get licensed in California and have been licensed in another state or province for over 5 years, or for psychologists who have previously been licensed in California for at least five years and have allowed the license to expire. In addition, candidates who hold a Certificate of Professional Qualification (CPQ) issued by ASPPB are eligible. These candidates do not have to take the California Supplemental Psychology Examination (CPSE).
The CPLEE is developed by the California Board of Psychology through the Office of Professional Examination Service of the Department of Consumer Affairs. The CPLEE is computer administered at PSI examination centers . The CPLEE consists of 40-multiple choice questions that encompass the laws, regulations, and ethical requirements for California psychologists. Examinees have one hour to complete the CPLEE.
There is one form of the CPLEE in circulation during each six month period (Feb 1 – July 31, and August 1 – January 31). The cutoff score for passing varies on each form of the CPLEE, and has ranged from 30/40 - 34/40. The current passing score cutoff is 34/40, through July 31, 2013. Candidates who do not pass the CPLEE must wait six months before being eligible to re-test.
