Independent third-party examiners

The following list contains contact information for Washington State Certified Independent Third Party Examiners (TPE).

If it hasn't been previous indicated who you'll test with, contact us at 360.902.3785 to know if you will test with a TPE. If authorized to test with a TPE, you'll need to pay the skills test fee to the TPE at the time of the test. You can't take a skills test until we've approved your training certificate or agribusiness waiver. Skills test taken before we've approved these documents will require the driver to take the skills test again.
