POST Written Tests at EVC

Test Info (please read carefully):


The Academy charges a non-refundable materials fee of $10 per test. Should you need to cancel or reschedule a testing, you will be required to pay the fee again; keep this policy in mind when scheduling your test date.


The Academy administers the POST Entry-level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB). The PELLETB is a timed, 2-1/2 hour written test consisting of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions designed to measure reading and writing ability.


The Academy requires a T-score of 48 or higher in order to gain entry into its Basic Police Academy. Test results usually return from POST in 7-10 days from the test date and then emailed as a pdf attachment the same day we receive them.

POST regulations prohibit examinees from taking this exam more than one time in any 30-day period from any exam site in the State of California. Be advised that if you make multiple attempts to take this exam within a 30-day period, POST will invalidate your exam.
