I believe it is not true for new PTO employees.  If you worked there before 2004 it is waivable.

37 CFR 11.7(d)(1) has provisions for employees hired after 2004to waive the registration exam.  The criteria are different than for employees hired before 7/2004 or for employees who had four years in at July 2004.

Even if you could, I am not sure why anyone would waive the patent bar exam.   You are truely missing out on very memorable experience.

Agree with Tata. If you have worked at the USPTO for 4 years, and taking/passing the Bar is a problem, you have bigger problems! Cool
