Certified Official's Exam

Certified Official's Exam

Once the Touring Pros for a given year are calculated they are sent an email with information on how to take the Official's Exam free of charge. If you didn't receive this email please contact the PDGA Office.

The test is not timed, and is open book. The subject matter will cover both the 2013 PDGA Official Rules of Play and the 2013 PDGA Competition Manual.

You may take the exam an unlimited number of times until an acceptable score of 80% is achieved.

The PDGA Certified Officials Exam certification is good for three years, unless otherwise noted by the PDGA Board due to a major rules revision.

There is a US$10 fee for all persons required to take the PDGA Certified Officials Exam.

Tournament Directors of PDGA Sanctioned events are required to be a Certified Official. Starting in 2011 passing the Official's Exam is now required for all amateurs and professional competitors playing in a National Tour Elite Series or PDGA Major event.
