While DMV Customer Service Centers are reopening, the staggered openings and services by appointment only have implications for pesticide applicators and their ability to take the certification exam(s). To address the issue, the Administration has again extended the expiration date for all Notices of Authorization to tests issued on or after December 20, 2019. All authorization letters for prospective applicators to take the exam(s) to become certified issued on or after December 20, 2019, will now expire on October 31, 2020, or the current date of expiration, whichever is greater. Prospective applicators that do not take the exam(s) by October 31, 2020, or the current date of expiration, whichever is greater, will be required to submit a new application with appropriate fees to take the exam(s).
