01

State Trooper Written Exam.

  • Math.
  • Grammar and spelling.

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 Maryland 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.

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.
