POST PELLETB Test at CSM: 12/11/18

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.


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



  • Check your confirmation and plan to arrive NO LATER than event start time to allow for check-in.

  • To comply with State law enforcement testing security measures, we are required to view and retain your government-issued photo ID for the duration of the exam; bring a valid Passport, Driver's License, etc.

  • Late arrivals will not be admitted.

  • We do not accept walk-ins for this test.


We email test results to you via a secure pdf as soon as we receive scores from POST (normally within 7-10 days from test date).
