When can I schedule my Physical Ability Test?

Some agencies will not accept your initial written score without a PAT and others will not accept your scores until you also have a passing PAT. If the agency requires a PAT score, you must complete a PST PAT within 90 days of your written exam. Be sure to check each agency’s profile.

Your Physical Ability Test (PAT) will be conducted at a later date and you will be required to travel to complete the PAT either at a PST Test Site or at the agency.

What is the deadline I need to take the test on in order to be considered for the next hiring cycle?

You can find each agency’s deadline and more information on the hiring process on our Career Opportunities page. If not, please contact the agency's Human Resources or Civil Service Department.

What do I need to do after setting up a test date?

While you're waiting to get an e-mail about registering, get the Certifications and Liability Waiver & Release Agreement notarized and scan it to the PST office.

You will not be able to test unless you scan your liability waiver form to PST. Please email it to scan must be legible to be accepted.
