All state and provincial agencies use the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE®) to evaluate the competency of entry-level veterinarians and require a passing score for a veterinarian to be credentialed. As of February 2022, the AAVSB no longer completes the Veterinary Exam Eligibility Review (VEER) service for veterinary candidates applying to take the NAVLE® through the state of California.
The NAVLE® is owned and administered by the International Council for Veterinary Assessment(ICVA®). For all information about the NAVLE® including application requirements, application windows, testing windows, visit the webpage on the ICVA website.
The AAVSB does not credential veterinarians or review information regarding the California State Exam. For specific credential information, contact your state or provincial agency.
