Written Examination: Successful applicants will move on to the P.O.S.T. Written Examination the same day. The cost is $20.00 cash-only. There are no dress requirements. This is a timed written examination.
Oral Board Examination: Successful applicants will then be individually scheduled for an Oral Board Examination either the same day, or the next subsequent days following the testing; priority is given to out-of-state applicants.
We highly suggest preparing now, whether that be keeping up with your running and exercise, practicing for the P.O.S.T. written examination, or studying for the oral board examination; it will only benefit you come time for testing! Remember: You can schedule an appointment with Wyoming P.O.S.T. to take your written examination early! The test results are good for one year and can be presented at our next testing process.
