Can I take a Private Exam at the Division of Motor Vehicles?
The DMV locations across Virginia are the primary testing sites for commercial pesticide applicator exams. They also offer exams for private applicators as do local Extension offices.
You may take a Private exam at your local DMV -- BUT YOU MUST FIRST COMPLETE the the following form and mail or fax it to VDACS.

Once processed, you will receive an authorization letter from VDACS. You must show this authorization and a picture I.D. before a test will be administered at a DMV.
In addition, Private exams may be taken at your local Extension Office by appointment.
