We do the Act 235 psychological exam on selected Saturdays and Sundays. The exam is administered by Dustan A. Barabas, P.C., who is a PA licensed psychologist, assisted by his support staff. The next exam date is announced on this website and when you call our number. Our exam sessions begin promptly at 8:00AM. Plan to arrive by 8:00AM. Dr. Barabas’s fee for the psychological examination service is $200. INSURANCE IS NOT ACCEPTED.
You can reserve your seat by paying the full amount here with a credit card. We also accept walk-ins on a space available basis on the day of the exam. We only accept cash for walk-ins.
You can reach Dr. Barabas directly by phone at 570-629-4900. If you get voice mail, leave a message.
We have space for up to 25 applicants at the upcoming Act 235 examination session. To guarantee your spot for this exam session, you must reserve your seat for the psychological exam here. Walk-ins will only be admitted until we reach our limit of 25 people. Only people who are taking the psychology exam will be admitted to take the physical exam. The physical exam service is separate from Dr. Barabas who is the psychologist. If you have questions about the physical exam, you must call or email the physician. Dr. Barabas cannot respond to calls about the physical exam.
NOTE: If you have questions about whether the State Police have your application or your exam results, you must call the PA State Police Lethal Weapons Office at 717-346-7763. Their fax is 717-346-7781.
IMPORTANT: When you reserve your seat, we expect you to show up. If you don’t show up, you forfeit the $200. fee you paid. If you cancel with at least 72 hour notice, a refund will be issued minus a $50. administrative fee. If you need to reschedule, as long as you provide at least 72 HOUR NOTICE that you cannot attend, you may come to a subsequent scheduled exam session. However, you will have to pay a $50. cash administrative fee when you attend. This voucher is good for no more than six (6) months from the date of the exam for which you had registered. Applicants who register here on the website will have their one-on-one psychological interview before people who walk in.
