Being a USPS Motor Vehicle Operator

With more than 200,000 vehicles in its fleet, the USPS holds the distinction of being the largest civilian fleet all over the world. Each year, letter carriers and truck drivers drive 1.2 billion miles just to deliver mail. Needless to say, motor vehicle operators are an integral part of the postal workforce. These professional drivers see to it that mail gets picked up and transported to their proper destinations.

Applicants for motor vehicle operators have to take postal exam 230. It’s a unique type of postal battery exam because it’s not really a test but a questionnaire which asks you questions about your driving record and your driving experience. While it may not look like an exam, your answers are given an equivalent numerical score and will be used to determine your suitability for the position. Of course, the USPS will not tell you just how they do this. One thing is for sure: it would be to your advantage to answer honestly. The USPS has built-in checks when they craft these kinds of tests so inconsistent answers will only ruin your score. Besides, background checks are conducted by the USPS before you are given a final offer of employment so lying will not get you anywhere.

Among the topics that postal exam 230 will cover are the number of driving offense convictions you have had in the last 5 years due to alcohol and drugs; number of hit and run convictions and reckless driving convictions in the last 5 years; and the number of fatal accidents you’ve been involved in which are judged to be your fault. They will also want to know if you’ve had your driver’s license suspended in the past 3 years; if you’ve had your driver’s license revoked in the last 5 years; and the months of full-time experience you’ve had driving certain vehicles.

To apply for a motor vehicle operator job with the USPS, you need to have at least a couple of years of driving experience, with at least a year of full time experience driving a 7 ton truck or 16 ton passenger bus. It is necessary to show that you have a safe driving record. At the time of appointment, you must have a valid Commercial Driver’s License from the state where you hold residence. You should have air brakes certification for the type of vehicle used on the job.

Aside from motor vehicle operators, the USPS also needs tractor trailer operators who are tasked with operating heavy-duty tractor trailers for over-the-road service, city shuttle service, or trailer spotting operations. Salary for USPS drivers range from $20 to a little over $21 an hour. Usually, USPS drivers are full-time career positions that have benefits.
