A proctor is the person who is authorized to administer the FLATS test to you. Although the FLATS test is online, you are required to take the exam with a certified FLATS proctor. The proctor is located at a college or university, and is usually a testing center employee. Only an authorized person can be a proctor. Your proctor will provide a computer and a quiet testing environment for you to take your online test. If you need a proctor, send us an email with your location (including colleges and universities in your area), so that we can find a proctor at the school nearest you. If there are no certified FLATS proctors in your area, we will give you instructions on how to proceed in certifying someone near you.
