The highest performing applicants in these subtests will be invited to enter the Idaho state trooper training academy, where they will undertake an intensive 6-week course program.

Below, you can learn more about all state trooper subtests you will be expected to undertake in Idaho.

01

State Trooper Written Exam.

Subjects tested on the state trooper written test include:

  • Math.
  • Grammar and spelling.
  • Map reading exercises.
  • Memory tests.
  • Situational judgment.
  • Reading comprehension.

  • Obstacle course
  • Sit-ups and push-ups

Additional physical tests may also be included, at the discretion of the department.

03

Background Investigation.

Your application to Idaho state trooper test must be honest and complete. All parts of your application must be filled out and evidence must be supplied where requested.

Your application form will be examined and reviewed. Any necessary additional checks to verify details in your form will be conducted later in the process.

04

Oral Board Exam.

Every applicant taking Idaho state trooper test must undertake an oral board exam.

During this exam, you will be interviewed on a wide variety of questions – both relating to you and your suitability for the role, as well as more critical questions that assess your judgment when applied to specific policing scenarios.

For instance, you may be asked dynamic oral board questions that assess your reaction to how you would respond to a given situation. The oral board panel will then alter the situation and immediately request your response.

You need to be prepared; to think on your feet, but to react proportionately and professionally throughout the test.

05

Final Evaluation Tests.

You may be called upon to take a polygraph exam. If you have answered questions honestly in your background investigation, there is no reason to fear this part of the exam.

At this stage, the department may get back to you if they have found any inconsistencies with your background investigation form or whether you need to supply any additional evidence to substantiate any specific claim. Additional tests taken at this stage include:

  • Medical evaluation
  • Psychological evaluation

These are standard tests that assess both your physical and mental preparedness to meet the challenges that come with a career in law enforcement.

06

Offer of Employment.

Applicants who pass all sections of the Idaho state trooper test will be issued an offer of employment.

You will need to accept this employment offer within the specified timeframe that the department has given you.

Measurements will also be taken for your uniform.

Once your offer of employment has been accepted, you will be given more details about when you can start training at Idaho state trooper academy.
