There is a $43 convenience fee to take an examination at the PSI locations. All PSI locations have free parking and are available for Saturday examinations in addition to Monday through Friday. Some PSI sites also have evening hours. Information about these additional locations is available on PSI's Examination Scheduling Service when individuals are in the process of scheduling their examination.

The Department will continue to partner with PSI to maintain the integrity and security of the examination process.
