Full CSCS Practice Test with 50 Questions

If you’re planning to take your CSCS test soon you’ll need as much practice online as possible. In keeping with the original format of the test, we’ve created this full CSCS practice test with 50 questions so you can get the most realistic and complete experience possible.

The 50 questions in this full CSCS practice test will cover areas such as manual handling, accident reporting, working at height, respiratory risks, health and safety signs, fire extinguishers, noise and vibration and many more of the core CSCS test topics.

These 50 questions will be completely different from our first full CSCS practice test so if you’ve already completed that test you won’t have to answer the same questions again. You must answer all questions before you can get your final results. Good luck!

    I had my test today, Oct 2016 and I’ve passed. Thanks for the questions, the format structured the same way like in the real test centre, which helped a lot!
    Now, the first 10 questions are based on ‘behavioural case studies’. It’d be great if this can be incorporated into this mock test.

    Just took your practice test and scored 50/50.

    Hopefully I should pass my text next Thursday.

    Thanks for taking the time to put this test together for learners, very much appreciated.

  67. Keiran says:

    44/50 first try

  68. christopher bohana says:

    45/50 is that a pass

  69. Kathryn says:

    Admin.. maybe you can advise me. I revised everything over and over again and then failed on the Behaviour Case studies as it covered scenarios I knew nothing about .. and hadn’t even encountered in the revision material.

    Does the DVD contain this stuff? as I have the book already I don’t want to buy more of the same…and be paying out yet more money. Ive re-booked another test ..but hope to pass that one by having access to all the material needed beforehand. Thanks.

    • admin says:

      Hi Kathryn,
      The behavioural case study scenarios are not published in the Revision book but there’s general advice on preparing for the case studies on page 217 of the revision book.

      There is a behavioural case study practice test on the revision DVD but this only has 4 questions which in my opinion only serves as a taster of what the real questions will be like. Hope this helps and good luck with your next test.

    • aaron says:

      yes it does

  70. Kathryn says:
