So what do you need to do to use our testing services?
Register for License Express on the DOL's website if you do not already have a Washington ID card. At the end of the process, you will be given a PIC # (Personal Identification Code or also known as Confirmation ID) which is a combination of letters and numbers. Write this number down as it will be required to enroll in both the Knowledge or Skills test. Make sure you have this when you arrive for the test, in addition to photo identification. Without this number, you will not be able to schedule any required tests and we will not be able to report necessary scores to the DOL.
