NYSP Exam Preparation

The New York State Police have postponed the previously announced application period for the 2020 written exam due to COVID-19. Candidates interested in the exam should monitor the NYSP Website for the updated application and exam announcement. Once the actual test dates are known, CCS Test Prep® will be offering a very focused and effective exam preparation program which will be facilitated online during the 20 days leading up to the candidate’s actual test date. The fee for the prep program is $395 and course registration will not open until the new announcement is released by the NYSP to once again accept applications. 

CCS Test Prep® completed its 2017 Exam Preparation Program for NYSP cycle, and the exam results were released on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Chief David A. Paprota, Ed.D. (Ret.) was happy to see the exceptional results from CCS Test Prep® students who worked extremely hard to enhance their testing skills and achieve excellence. Scores of 99+ were expected and were achieved by CCS Test Prep® students. Candidates once again validated the understanding that if you are willing to put in the work through consistent, diligent, and on-point study, you can achieve excellence on a highly competitive written examination.

Anyone interested in being added to the email list to be notified by CCS Test Prep® of the ability to register for the 2021 prep program should complete and submit the Inquiry Form below.

Any information regarding the NYSP exam cycle is posted on the NYSP website at www.joinstatepolice.ny.gov.

The 2020 New York State Trooper exam was expected to be administered during the month of October 2020, but due to COVID-19, the exam was postponed. As a point of reference, the 2017 New York State Trooper exam was administered on October 7th; October 14th; October 21st; and October 28th, 2017. The New York State Police utilized a new and enhanced examination which was 3 hours and 40 minutes in length involving 329 questions. The New York State Police entry-level written assessment was actually developed by a private vendor contracted by the State of New York. The EB Jacobs company, as contracted by the State of New York, has produced the Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB-II™). The LEAB-II™ is a 3-part assessment consisting of a Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT), Work Styles Questionnaire (WSQ), and a Life Experience Survey (LES). Candidates who participated in the testing cycle needed to achieve an exceptionally high composite score on the examination to be included in a hiring process.


The Law Enforcement Aptitude Battery (LEAB-II™) is a new and very challenging exam that was administered for the first time in New Jersey in 2016 and again in New Jersey in 2017. Now, it has replaced the “old version” of the New York State Police entry-level examination. The new version includes new and challenging trait assessment scales which confuse most test-takers which can lead to unusually low scores for many “ideal” candidates. Don’t be caught off guard. The scores tend to stay on file for as long as four years, so don’t be left out.
