As part of the Tasmania Police selection process, applicants will be required to participate in a series of aptitude and problem solving tests.  These tests are designed to assess your suitability to undertake the academic content of the Tasmania Police Recruit Training Course Curriculum as well as your ability to successfully fulfill the role of a police officer.

No feedback concerning the outcomes of the assessments is available.

Applicants may only undertake the testing once every 12 months.  If you are unsuccessful, you will need to wait 12 months before submitting another Expression of Interest.


New Online Testing procedure

Please note that as of 1 January 2020, Tasmania Police will no longer be offering pencil and paper assessments.

Revelian, our testing service provider, is migrating to online testing which will incorporate game based Cognify testing as well as Psychometric testing.

The testing will assess problem solving ability, numerical reasoning and verbal knowledge through six mini-games which applicants will have to complete. Examples of the game based testing can be found on their website https://www.revelian.com/employer/product/cognify/

At this stage the online testing will be able to be completed at home rather than attending the Tasmania Police Academy.

The tests are designed to assess an applicant’s ability to think quickly and logically demonstrating their reading, writing and numerical ability as well as an ability to solve problems through computer-based games.
