Your CircleCI configuration should use a dedicated VM for testcontainers to work. You can achieve this by specifying the

.circleci/config.yml to be
machine instead of the default
docker executor ( see Choosing an Executor Type for more info ).

# Check https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/language-java/ for more details # version: 2 machine: true jobs: build: steps: - checkout - run: mvn -B clean install
