WALK-IN TESTING:

If you are willing to report for testing without a scheduled time, you may be able to test sooner by utilizing walk-in testing. Walk-in testing is an option on most testing days on a first-come, first-served basis, based upon “available seating”. Available seating occurs when an applicant scheduled for testing does not arrive or when an applicant completes their test early. Since these events are unpredictable, you must call (717) 787-2935 before visiting. As a general rule, if you plan on taking advantage of walk-in testing, it is advisable to arrive early in the morning, since the length of some tests and the demand of seating in later test sessions precludes walk-in testing later in the morning or in the afternoon. In all cases, you must call ahead to receive guidance regarding the best dates and times to utilize the walk-in testing option.

NOTE:

If you are testing with an accommodation due to a disability, you must call our office Telephone Voice 717-787-2935.  Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS): 711 (hearing and speech disabilities or other individuals).
