Please ensure that the Department of Civil Service (DCS) has your current contact information. When you are taking a written test, your mailing address is used to assign you to a test site. If you have a prior or incorrect address listed, you might be assigned to a test site that is farther from your home than necessary.
Additionally, the email address you have on record with DCS is used to contact you about examinations, canvasses, and related issues. If the email address they have for you is not one that you that regularly use, you might miss important, time sensitive communications.
