​Test Centers

Some civil service positions require an applicant to take an exam at a test center.

Before scheduling an examination, you must first apply to a posting that requires a written exam.

If you meet eligibility requirements, you will be sent an email notification regarding how to schedule the exam at a test center. Written exams are administered at Prometric sites located throughout the Commonwealth. Information on locations, hours of operation, and scheduling or rescheduling an exam can be found at  www.prometric.com/Pennsylvania.

Testing Accommodations

The commonwealth realizes that some applicants with disabilities may require testing accommodations to enable them to perform to their full potential on the examination. 

Change To: If you anticipate the need for a testing accommodation, you must complete a “Request for Testing Accommodation” form. If you have previously submitted documentation to request the same or a similar accommodation for a civil service examination, you do not need to submit another form. Please call our office directly at (717) 787-2935 to make arrangements to schedule your exam.

This form can also be requested by calling (717) 787-2935. All information you provide is confidentially maintained.

A variety of federal, state, and local agencies provide rehabilitation, advocacy, and referral services to individuals with disabilities, including the Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR).

To find out more about services provided by OVR, you may visit the website for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry at and click on the section for "Individuals" and then click on "Disability Services," or telephone 1-800-442-6351.
