16 hour NCEES lateral and vertical exam
Once that exam is passed:
8 Hour NCEES Civil Exam (May be waived if you're already a PE in another state, i.e., New York
2.5 Hour seismic principle exam
2.5 hour engineering surveying exam
California take home exam on rules and laws.

Getting back to the root of the statement though is that the SE is considered as an "add on" license to the PE: Civil license.

You need (4) California SE's as references. They need to certify proficiency in 3 out 4 materials (steel, concrete, wood and masonry)...
^^For the most part those are the rules, but you need to know at least 3 CA or WA SE's in order to serve as references as well. Getting back to the root of the statement though is that the SE is considered as an "add on" license to the PE: Civil license.

I am a licensed Civil Engineer in California (8 hour NCEES PE + State Specific Seismic and Surveying + Takehome Exam), I have also passed the 16 hour NCEES Structural Exam. I have (3) references who are CA licensed SEs. I fill out my applications, gently remind my references to not let my application envelope sit on their desk for 6 months, spend my $275 "engineering fee" and that's it?
The CSESE (California Structural Engineering Seismic Exam - CA Eng 2 Exam or 3 Exam depending on who you talk to) is gone?

I wish you luck in this. I hope that all you would only need to do is to fill out the paperwork and pay the fee!!!

Well, I would wait to see what the CA Board says. You might have a take home exam, you might have to go there to take it, or you may not even need to take an exam at all. Stranger things have happened I suppose.
I really have no idea on this exam, I simply took the "legacy exam" and bypassed the whole mess.

I guess you better make sure you get a job with at least four (4) SEs in the place and make sure to buy them coffee every morning for a year. LOL.
Yeah, no kidding. I work with (1) SE, and he's not licensed as such in the state I'm taking the SE exam in. Fortunately, it looks like Washington doesn't have the same requirement for a minimum number of SE references.
