OFFICE CLOSINGS:

Go to www.oa.pa.gov and if "all agencies under the Governor's jurisdiction" in Harrisburg are closed or delayed due to inclement weather or other authorized reasons, then SCSC testing will be cancelled or delayed for that day.  If testing is cancelled, or delayed or if you feel your local road conditions make it unsafe to travel, you can reschedule your test date by logging in to On-Line Services.

WALK-IN TESTING:

If you are willing to test without a scheduled time, Walk-In Testing may be a quicker alternative.  On most testing days we will be able to seat you after a short wait based on available seating.  "Available seating" occurs when a person scheduled for testing does not arrive or when someone completes their test early. Since these events are somewhat unpredictable, we cannot promise you will be tested as a Walk-In candidate.  If you are considering this alternative, please arrive in the morning to give yourself the best testing opportunity.  In all cases, you must call the test center at 717-783-3058 before visiting to receive guidance regarding the best dates and times utilize the walk-in testing option.  You must also apply for the examination you wish to take before reporting to the test center. When you arrive, please advise the SCSC staff person at the front desk you want to be tested as a Walk-In.
