Mechanic Application

Agency: State

Mechanic Certification

A person first must pass a test for each repair category in which certification is desired.  A person is not eligible to apply for certification until passing the appropriate repair category test. The application for certification is included with the test result letter. A person must complete the application and return it with the appropriate fee to the Bureau of Driver and Vehicle Programs.

To become certified, you must complete an application for certification, Form AR-0018 (which is sent with your test result letter) and return the application with the $25 fee to the Bureau of Driver and Vehicle Programs. You may make application for certification in any number of repair categories at one time and pay a single application fee of $25. If you pass more tests after you become certified and your certification is current, an amended certificate with the new categories added will automatically be mailed to you at no extra cost.
