New York State Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Mark J.F. Schroeder said,

This new online option will greatly benefit not only those applying to take the Motor Vehicle Representative exam, but our customers as well. It will facilitate DMV’s efforts to attract qualified candidates and allow us to better serve the motoring public, especially our non-English speaking customers. And those seeking to enter public service will have a more-convenient path to a rewarding career in New York State government.


In order to take the online civil service exam, anyone interested in a job must meet the minimum qualifications:

- Have a high school diploma or a high school equivalency diploma
- One year of customer service experience or 30 semester credit hours of college-level courses

All people who meet the minimum qualifications must apply for the exam, then access the online exam and submit all examination materials by August 31, 2022. The online exam will require candidates to provide information about their training and experience with an online questionnaire that is completed and submitted by the candidate. Candidates should be prepared to provide information about their education and customer service-based employment history to be able to respond to the questions on the questionnaire accurately.

The NY DMV is looking to hire people who are proficient in other languages, including Chinese, Creole, Italian, Korean, Sign Language, Russian and Spanish.
