Current DMV Examination Announcements

The State of California has a merit-based civil service selection system, so before you can work for the state, you need to pass an examination. If you meet the minimum requirements (also known as minimum qualifications) for your specific classification of interest, you can apply to take the examination if it is currently available.

Open examinations are open to anyone who meets the minimum requirements of the examination.

Promotional examinations are restricted to current or recent DMV employees. You can apply for promotional examinations if you:

  • Currently have a permanent State civil service appointment with the DMV.
  • Qualify as a Veteran under Government Code Section 18991.
  • Qualify as a Legislative or Executive Branch employee under Government Code section 18990, 18992, or 18993.
  • Qualify as a former DMV employee under State Personnel Board Rule 235.
