CSCS Card Course Practice Mock Exam, Actual Questions & Answers From The CSCS Test UK

Updated on December 3, 2015

Sample Questions From The UK CSCS Exam / Test 2015 / 2016

The CSCS ( Construction Skills Certification Scheme ) is a required certification for individiuals to work on building sites within the UK. The qualification means that the person has passed basic site awareness in Health and Safety aspects around the work place.

The cscs card is renewable every three to five years, and without one, most workers will not be allowed to continue working on any building site within the UK. The CSCS test/exam itself, lasts for only 45 minutes, but many people finish it early as the multiple choice questions are basically common sense. A little revision for the CSCS test virtually guarantees a pass.

A mock exam or test for applicants wishing to pass the CSCS test are usually only available if you register and pay for the actual exam through various companies.

These are a selection of questions which appear in the CSCS test / exam. Although not all the questions are here, as the choice of questions they provide is extensive, the core questions which will result in a pass level are all mentioned. This mock cscs test / exam is designed to ensure that nearly all competent people will pass the exam.

The case study section questions are very similar to the CSCS exam questions, but entail watching a short video.

NB: The author of this, has an 11 year old son, whom after no revision, took the mock test and passed. Sample questions are excellent practice questions.

      Frankly if you cant pass this test I wouldnt want to work on site with you. It doesnt matter how long youve worked on site and its actually the guys that have worked on site the longest that avoid/skip all the safe practices. Revise if youve struggled with that mock exam, I got 2 wrong, both fire extingusher related so I will now make sure I know them.

      Education is important. I am now sitting in bed with a dislocated arm because I left out one rule in health and safety. I will be out of work for another 4 months and have so far lost over £3000. Not very happy.

      health and safety is all good,, but why must we pay for these cards.

      i have a work mate who has very slight learning disabilities and has just failed the test, he has been a competent tradesman for 35 years.

      this type of testing has put him in fear of losing his job and dignity.
