COMPATIBILITY CHECKS FOR EACH PLATFORM

We strongly recommend you complete a quick compatibility check for each platform ahead of your online test using the links below. Even though the online test will only be administered on one of these platforms, testing out both will only further ensure your equipment is compatible for any online test with the City of Los Angeles. Technical support information for the various platforms can be found on the remote proctored online testing homepage.
