DMV Representative Test Free Sample Questions

Sample question for the cashiering principles section: 

Amount due: $36.80. The customer gives you one $10.00 bill, four $5.00 bills, four $1.00 bills, five half dollar coins and two quarters. What is the correct change?

A. $0.00

B. $0.50

C. $0.20

D. None of the above.


Sample question for the situational judgement test (SJT) section:

When an upset customer is describing a problem, which action should be avoided?

A. Spending too much time listening to the customer’s description of the problem.
B. Gently asking the customer to calm down so that you can help them.
C. Suggesting that the customer speak to the manager.
D. Trying to focus the customer on their original need.
E. Promising to follow up on the problem resolution.


Least effective response: D
Subject: Conflict between two customers
Competencies: Prioritizing, critical thinking, service orientation

Explanation: In this scenario, you have a conflict between the need to serve two customers.

In response A, you ignore the request by the customer on the phone to speak to you specifically. This is not a good response, although both customers are served.

In response B, both customers are served and you respond to the calling customer’s request to speak to you personally. However, you leave the customer you are currently serving in the middle of your interaction. Nevertheless, this is better than answer choice A since the customer in the store did not ask for you personally.

Answer choice C balances the two needs – you give the calling customer your personal attention and let them know that you will contact them. You also don’t leave the customer in the store.

Answer D tries to make this balance; however, the customer in the store is kept waiting the whole time during your conversation. This is the least effective response, as by trying to serve them both at the same time you neglect the customer in the store. It is better to leave this customer with a colleague than keep them waiting.
