All applications must be postmarked by the final filing date. Any applications postmarked after the final filing date will be returned without being reviewed. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received. Please allow up to 30 days from the date we receive the application for processing. We recommend that applicants submit their examination applications as soon as they meet the eligibility requirements and not wait until the final filing date, if at all possible. ​

Please submit the Special Accommodation Request for Examination (CDPH523) (PDF) with your examination application if special accommodations may be necessary to take the examination.
