Landscape Architect Licensing Exam (L.A.R.E.)

About the L.A.R.E.

The Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.) is designed to determine whether applicants for landscape architectural licensure possess sufficient knowledge, skills and abilities to provide landscape architectural services without endangering the health, safety and welfare of the public.

Successful completion of the Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.) is required for licensure as a landscape architect in the 47 U.S. States, one U.S. Territory and the two Canadian Provinces which license landscape architects.

The L.A.R.E. is exactly the same in every jurisdiction. The same exam is administered on the same days and under the same conditions in every jurisdiction, and all exams are uniformly graded by CLARB.

The L.A.R.E. is made up of the following sections:

  1. Project and Construction Management
  2. Inventory and Analysis
  3. Design
  4. Grading, Drainage and Construction Documentation

Plus:

Florida administers the Laws and Rules examination or Section F.

All are computer-generated exams. All five sections must be passed prior to licensure.

The L.A.R.E. is administered across the United States and Canada only on dates established by CLARB. The graphic sections of the exam are administered by state and provincial registration boards or by CLARB in regional testing centers. The multiple-choice sections of the exam are administered by CLARB using a national system of computer testing centers.

It is important for applicants to contact the registration board in the state or province in which they wish to take the test to determine specific information about schedule, locations and application deadlines.

For the graphic sections of the L.A.R.E., each jurisdiction establishes its own deadlines for receiving completed applications. The following information will give you some idea about the deadlines and other requirements.

For the multiple-choice sections of the L.A.R.E., CLARB establishes the deadlines for completion of the online application. Candidates may check these deadlines on the CLARB web site. It is often best for candidates to apply for the multiple choice sections of the L.A.R.E. as soon as possible in order to make early test center reservations. Test centers have a limited number of seats and are filled on a first come, first served basis.
