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!
