Mobile Device Policy
Please note that the use of mobile devices is not permitted inside test rooms and will result in disqualification of test results.
If someone else does not show up for an exam, you may be able to test as a walk-in candidate.
The commonwealth realizes that some applicants with disabilities may require testing accommodations to enable them to perform to their full potential on the examination.
If you anticipate the need for a testing accommodation, you must complete a "Testing Accommodation Certification" form. This form will be reviewed each time you submit an application.
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
