You likely will never know your mark. Usually around 70-80% on our in house exams I believe..

Couod be be even less, like 50-60%. Having said that, if you pass with such low marks and top-down selection is used, it could be awhile before you get an interview.

They will not know their mark or where they place against others.

The exam is designed to show more than just a pass/fail mark, so speculation about what percentage is required to move to the interview step is misguided.

Okay, thanks for the comments everyone. I felt that I did good on the exam. Just quite a few questions with short answers so can't gauge how I did on those.

Hi everyone, I passed the written exam and was notified a little bit ago. I was wondering if there are any tips, techniques or knowledge anyone could share to help me prepare for the interview? Thank you.

The role CVE plays in road safety and how they do it.

That may sound to general, but to find the answer, applicants are going to have to conduct some research. Those that are hired tend to be people that can investigate for answers, as that is what a lot of the recruit training and the job is.

Thanks for the information AHP309!

I was wondering does anyone know if the interviews have all been done? if so curious how many people passed the interview and are moving onto the next part? If not what is the average time frame for when people will hear back on how they did on the interview? Thanks in advance

Interviews are done. Background checks are in progress.

The number of qualified applicants means nothing, so don't worry about it. People drop out of the process (or fail tests and background checks) for many reasons, as well, some will not take the posting offered. You just have to be patient and wait for whatever the future holds.

Out of curiosity, can CVE officers perform traffic stops on private vehicles? I recently saw a CVE vehicle on the highway with its lights on, stopped behind a minivan, but I wasn't sure if they had pulled it over or if they just stopped to help someone in trouble.
