 You dont  have to study anything the test is a personality test....When filing is over they'll randomly assign out list numbers and call in that order

I applied for 3101 but I'm not sure I even want a OA spot. None of the work is appealing at all.

So the difference between exam 2301 and 3101, is 3101 is specifically Manhattan and the Bronx?

If this is true where is 2301 hiring for? All the other areas?

Thanks so much for your response! :-)  One more question, how long does to whole process usually takes. I'm now starting to read the CDL DMV book for get my permit and then license, if they call me and I haven't yet received my license would I be disqualified automatically?

Keep in mind as an OA operator you can also pick into any TA depot listed below:

 

126 Street

East New York

Flatbush

Fresh Pond

Grand Avenue

Jackie Gleason

Ulmer Park

 

You just wouldn't be able to go to any of the ATU affiliated garages which are the ones in Queens and Staten Island.

Next we will be sent random numbers and after that we will receive letters to show up at livingston for the BOSS exam. These letters are sent in numerical order. Probably first 3000 will receive it to take the boss in a 2 month frame like the 2301 exam.
