I just received my exam results and I am over the moon! I exceeded the pass mark in every section and even managed to get a perfect score in the writing. I wanted to thank you John for your preparation material and to Suzi for her feedback on my written responses. I can guarantee I wouldn't have passed with the access to your material.
“Hi John, I just sat my entrance exam for Victoria Police last week and received my score of 211. I was aiming for 230, but still happy. I would like thank you for your excellent course and study material – it helped me immensely. I can say that your study material was comprehensive and spot on. I now have to prepare for the next stage of the process which may be a video interview. I will immerse myself in your study material."
“I have just sat my QLD Police Entry Exam today and I feel it necessary to say a huge thank you. I have bought a few of your resources to help me prepare for this day and I’d just like you to know that I felt so confident walking in that room today. I was prepared for what to expect and that was a massive contributor to my calmness today. I used the strategies I have learnt from your ebooks and I left that exam today knowing full well I’d done the best I could do. I don’t mean to go on and on but the information you passed onto me through your very accurate ebooks was a saviour."
“I’d just to like to take this opportunity to commend you on your media and the way it is presented. I have just recently sat the VICPOL entrance exam. Without your detailed study guide I’m not sure I would have passed. I blitzed it thanks to you. The old brain still functions! Armed with your booklets and a knowledge of information, I am now looking forward to the next phases of my application. Thank you. Money VERY WELL SPENT!!"
I just received my test results this morning and I am so happy to say I was successful! Now onto the next step! Still can't thank you guys enough. Your Police Prep was such a massive help. Thanks heaps on helping me achieve my goals.
“Just a quick email to follow up on how I went. I purchased your academic pack back near the start of the year in preparation for the PEE exam. As you are probably aware I was successful in passing the entrance testing to continue on with the selection process. To cut a long story short, I begin my new career in at the Academy in Blue squad on 23 November. I’d just like to say that I think you have a very good product for people like myself who without the abstract reasoning section/training, I doubt that I would have progressed past the PEE. So thanks again for your help, and I look forward (still in disbelief) to beginning this new challenge."
A few weeks ago, I got the call from SAPOL! I'm starting at the Academy on November 16...the dream has come true! Thank you, and all the team for your support and resources through the entire selection process. The degree of preparation and skill sets I gained through this were critical to my performance! It reassured me that I was showing up every time presenting my very best self. Thank you again! All the best in guiding others towards their dream."
Just want to say a big thank you for the police prep documents. I have been successful with my application and will be starting at the academy on the 17th of July. The preparation documents were extremely helpful in my preparation and practising both Wonderlic test and the supervised exam, moreover very important as these are being used at the initial stages of the application. I would like to thank John Ashburton for his work and also Suzi from the support team for the excellent support.
I have used Police Prep Australia resources for entrance exams into NT POLICE FORCE and I have progressed through to interview stage , it's my third attempt and because of Police Prep Australia I made it. I wish I would have used all prep resources offered by Police Prep Australia in my first attempt. Thank you John Ashburton

The Queensland Police is one of the most sought after police services in Australia. There are more people looking for information on how to excel in police selection in Queensland than any other state*. This is an excellent indication that if you are considering a police career in Queensland you will need to make some effort to stand out amongst the other applicants.
One of the most common failings for unsuccessful applicants of the Queensland Police selection is the QPS Entrance Assessment (QPSea). This is made up of five (5) separate components. Each component is separately timed and each component will be completed on a computer.
If you fail, you may have to wait another 12 months to re-sit.
The duration of the selection process will take some months depending on how many recruit squads are planned and how competitive your application. If you pass each stage of selection you will eventually be ranked and graded amongst the hundreds of other applicants. When the next recruit squad is trained only the top applicants will be selected, so it is critical that you perform at your very best during each stage of testing.
This is an extremely competitive State Police Service. With such a high volume of applications it can take anywhere between 6 - 9 months to process. Successful applicants go on to complete a 31 week intensive course at the Victoria Police Academy, followed by post Academy placements and driver training, and will finally graduate with a Diploma of Policing. You may be posted anywhere within Victoria on graduation so be prepared for that.
The selection process is quite rigorous in Victoria and high standards are set throughout. There are 11 stages to the process -
1. APPLICATION PREPARATION
2. ELIGIBILITY CHECKS
3. ENTRANCE EXAM
4. BACKGROUND CHECKS
5. VIDEO INTERVIEW
6. FITNESS TESTS
7. PSYCH TESTING
8. HEALTH CHECKS
9. COMPREHENSIVE CHECKS
10. PANEL INTERVIEW
11. CANDIDATE POOL
Here at Police Preparation Australia we focus on the following testing phases:
- Written Entrance Exams
- Physical Fitness Tests
- Psychological Testing and Interviews
The written exams and interviews are the more rigorous aspects for this particular police service. However, do not underestimate the importance of your fitness scores as your individual performance will be ranked and compared to hundreds of other hopeful applicants.
NEW SOUTH WALES POLICE
NSW Police Entrance Requirements
The NSW Police recruitment is conducted through Charles Sturt University.
If you are considering a policing career with the NSW Police Force, one of the first steps will be completing a foundation level program called the University Certificate in Workforce Essentials (UCWE). The UCWE prepares students for the challenges of the Constable Education Program / Associate Degree in Policing Practice and is the mandatory academic requirement for all NSW Police Force applicants.
Police Preparation Australia currently does not offer a state specific exam preparation course for the NSW Police Service however, if you’re looking to improve writing, computer skills and psychometric tests, our Master the Victoria Police Exams program is closest match to this.
WESTERN AUSTRALIA POLICE
The Western Australia Police is known for upholding the highest physical entry standards of any police service in the country. Depending on your age and gender you will be required to score up to level 7.01 on the Beep Test as well as complete numerous other physical tasks including the “Illinois Agility Test”. Again, the Western Australia Police has the highest standard for this agility test for both men and women of any police service in the country.
Yet to make it to the physical assessment training stage, you must first negotiate a gruelling series of aptitude, spelling, writing, psychological, numerical reasoning and selection interviews.
The duration of the selection process will take some months depending on how many recruit squads are planned and how competitive your application. If you pass each stage of selection you will eventually be ranked amongst the hundreds of other applicants and graded into a selection pool. When the next recruit squad is trained only the top thirty applicants will be selected. So it is critical that you perform at your very best during each stage of testing.
SOUTH AUSTRALIA POLICE
The South Australia Police is another highly competitive state police service. South Australia Police have also launched a new recruitment campaign to further boost the quality of applicants in each selection pool.
The duration of the selection process will take some months depending on how many recruit squads are planned and how competitive your application. If you pass each stage of selection you will eventually be ranked and graded amongst the hundreds of other applicants. When the next recruit squad is trained only the top applicants will be selected. So it is critical that you perform at your very best during each stage of testing.
The most challenging phases of selection are:
- Entrance Examination (Aptitude and Personality Assessment)
- Panel Interview
- Computer Skills
- Physical Assessment (Beep Test and Obstacle Course)
The duration of the entire selection process will take some months depending on how many recruit squads are planned and how competitive your application. If you pass each stage of selection you will eventually be ranked amongst the hundreds of other applicants and graded into a selection pool. When the next recruit squad is trained only the top applicants will be selected. So it is critical that you perform at your very best during each stage of testing.
NORTHERN TERRITORY POLICE
The Northern Territory (NT) Police is one of the toughest police districts in Australia. You will face the usual extreme hazards of police work in the most extreme environments. Pursuing a career in the Territory could mean a significant change in lifestyle – and a rewarding one too.
One of the unique aspects of the NT Police recruitment process is the scored Physical Assessment. Rather than a few simple pass/fail requirements, you are scored over a series of SEVEN physical assessments. This provides a very accurate comparison between applicants. It is therefore critical to perform at an excellent standard physically.
The remaining written testing phase and interview panel are similar to that conducted around the country. These elements of testing are also heavily scrutinised. Plus if you fail to meet the standard you may have to wait another year before being permitted to make another application – so be sure you are prepared on the day!
Tasmania Police Recruiting are looking for only the best applicants. At Police Preparation Australia, we are primarily focussed on getting you up to speed on the tougher aspects of physical selection as well as the series of written tests and interviews you will face in the initial ‘Ability Testing’ and subsequent Tasmania Police Assessment Day.
The Tasmania Police Preparation Pack is your personal guide for the best practice possible leading up to your selection tests and exams. This system will get you rapidly up to speed in the most challenging aspects of police selection.
