Hunter Education Program

1B Camp E-Hun-Tee Place
Exeter, RI 02822

In-Person Testing

Testing is only available to those students who have completed Rhode Island’s on-line hunter or on-line bowhunter education course the past 1 year. You must print and present your Certificate of Completion from the on-line course and a picture ID in order to take the in-person exam.

For All Students: There is no additional charge for the in-person exam. Please note that there will be questions on the in-person exam dealing with RI specific laws and regulations that were not covered in the on-line course. In order to prepare for the in-person exam please review the RI Hunting and Trapping Abstract. Specifically, you should focus on topics such as safety requirements, prohibited activities, and equipment rules. There is no need to memorize season dates and bag limits as you can always refer to the abstract during the seasons for this information. Please note that regulations must be checked on a yearly basis as changes occur.

  • For Hunter Education Students: The exam consists of 100 questions; 50 multiple choice and 50 true/false.
  • For Bowhunter Education Students: The exam consists of 50 questions; 30 multiple choice and 20 true/false.
