How long does it take to receive the PE license number after receiving the result? Did anyone receive the PE License number for the exam that happened last month?
License numbers are issued by the CA Board every Friday so I suggest you monitor the online License Search Saturdays/Mondays
My board email said 2-3 weeks, and it's been 13 days so far since I received the 'passed' email. Some said it takes 3-4 months in the past. Hopefully it's faster this time.
If you originally applied with a hard copy application I suggest calling the board after 3-4 weeks. They didn't have a system in place to keep track of those applicants after they transitioned to electronic applications. If you did an electronic application I would expect it to take 2-4 weeks.
Just got my license number 2 weeks after passing the last exam. Looks like their system is pretty fast these days.
