Civil Enforcement Officer Listening Test

Civil Enforcement Officer Listening Test Example Questions

As part of the Civil Enforcement Officer test you may be required to sit what is called a listening test. The listening test requires you to listen to a piece of information which is either read out to you by an assessor or pre-recorded on an audio recording device, such as a tape or CD player. Whilst the extract is being read out you are required to listen carefully to the information as you will be required to answer true, false or cannot say questions at the end. You are not permitted to take notes during the test.

The type of information that will be read out to you does vary greatly. For example, Kent County Council, at the time of publishing this book, are reading out the Goldilocks story during the listening test. Therefore, the only real way to improve your ability during this test is to actually practice a number of sample test questions.

 

EXAMPLE LISTENING TESTS

 
This page contains 3 example practice listening tests for you to try out. It is important to remember, you are not permitted to take notes whilst the extract is being read out.

Civil enforcement officers make sure that drivers follow parking regulations on public streets and in car parks. If you enjoy working outdoors and want a responsible role, this job could be a perfect job for you.
