Online Assessment

These are short tests measuring your Verbal, Numerical and Mechanical Reasoning.

Practice tests are available for the Fire and Rescue Service Ability Tests.  If you would like to experience shortened versions of the real assessments, please follow the links below.




Note: The online assessments should be completed by yourself alone and unassisted on a computer, laptop or tablet. They are not compatible with a smartphone. You should ensure that you have a stable internet connection when accessing and completing all the online stages. Checks may be undertaken at a later stage in the selection process to verify that you have completed these tests without assistance.
