DMV SJT

The Situational Judgement Test

An additional part of the DMV interview process may include taking the situational judgement test (SJT). SJT questions ask you to provide a resolution for specific work-related scenarios which pose a conflict or challenge.

The scenarios described may vary depending on the job role you are applying for. The DMV representative interview questions may be similar to questions posed by your interviewer, as they aim to assess how well you respond to challenges and your overall behaviour in the workplace.
