More CSCS Mock Test Questions

CSCS test questions and answers
Here are some more cscs mock test questions for you to practice with. These are also based on the first section of the construction skills (citb health safety and environment) test which is mainly to do with legal responsibilities and the management of health and safety on the site.

This section is all to do with what legal duties you have and what legal duties the management have towards you as a worker. It tells you (or rather asks you) what items and support must be provided by your employer for your health and safety and what you are legally expected to do to to maintain your own safety and that of others.

    i took the managers test today 31/5/11in eastbourne mobile unit i thought i had passed it wasnt until i got home i saw that i failed. how can i find out what questions i failed on ? it cost me 17.50 and im on benefit please let me see the results

    • admin June 2, 2011, 12:57 pm

      Hi Stephen. I’m sorry I don’t have any connection with the testers. I’m just trying to build up some info to help people see whats involved. If you are on benefit I think there are government schemes that should allow you to get free training and take the test again. Maybe one of the advertisers could give you information

  • Margaret June 5, 2011, 4:09 pm

    Stephen, you should apply for an ILA account which could give you £200 (Token) to take short courses such as the CSCS.
    And why not contact the people at the place you sat the course and ask for marks.

    • Carole June 16, 2011, 7:27 pm

      Hi margaret, can you tell me more about ILA token and how you can apply thanks carole

  • Lee November 14, 2011, 11:43 pm

    I’m also 17 and am really keen to get into the brick laying industry i have no past experience , i was wondering what would be the best route for me to take … I’m really interested in a bricklaying apprenticeship but i do not know where to look any suggestions ??

    • Alex May 22, 2012, 11:45 am

      Hi lee, I’m 26 and in the process of changing my career. I have started a Bricklaying Course at a local college, check with the colleges nearby and see if they offer the course. On some they also throw in the CSCS Training and Test. As for apprenriceships you would need your CSCS before you can work onsite.

    iv got my exam at 11 tomorow can u give me any tips ? ricky

  • Damian Janicki December 13, 2011, 12:05 pm

    Thanks for the great website. I used this to pass the test this morning:- ) There were a few new and more difficult questions this time around – one i never had before regarding site resting areas, a couple about vibrating hand tools and the one about the color of a water fire extinguisher and the standard COSHH came up. I will write a few down if it helps everyone. If anyone does want these questions I noted down as many of 40 questions that i can remember (about 25 so far as have good memory!) and will send them to anyone as required. Good luck to everyone who is going for the test. As many people have said this is mostly common sense and with a day or two’s revision most people will get through the test with no problems.

    • Jim February 3, 2012, 3:23 pm

  • pete February 24, 2012, 7:15 pm

    health and safety gone mad in this country. you need to go on a course for something or other just for a cleaning job. no wonder 5 million out of work

    • Lawrence Lorriman July 24, 2014, 10:36 am

      that comment you put on regarding this health and safety for cscs card is absolutely pathetic anybody with any brain cells knows what is correct and what is not allowed and this is uneeded and not wanted. If you decide to throw yourself off some ladders then that is unlucky for them. this is just common sense that has now gone well overboard.

  • pete February 24, 2012, 7:31 pm

    damian i used to work in the gas industry, one thing your learn is health and safety people have no sense of humour,common sense doesn.t come in to in to it, the ones on transco would love to hang you for doing something wrong. they take their grand children along to watch. see that bad man they say, he had a packet of palasters on his van/ and they where 2 weeks out of date. bad man

  • pete March 19, 2012, 7:35 pm

    all these cscs/plts courses are a complete waste of time/,health and safely is just common sense, it creates work for a lot of people, who would other wise be unemployable, horrid sad little people who have a chip on there shoulder , and want to get their own back on the world. they say give a little man a little bit of power, and he show you his ignorants. that sums up health and safely officals.

  • Dna March 30, 2012, 6:21 pm

    To be fair, common sense dont always work, people get killed by stupid mistakes made by stupid people. The CSCS does one thing and one thing well. It keeps idiots off site and I’m sure you all appreciate that. Since CSCS came out I’ve seen a dramatic reduction in the number of numpties I have to work with and I feel so much safer knowing that. Call me a bar steward if you want but I think the CSCS is a cracking idea cause I dont ever go home dead cause the scaffolding collapsed or the sparky wired up the ceiling grid or something like that…. Anyways,
    Just remember one thing, if you see that one-tit orange flashing light make sure it’s coffee, white with one sugar and you’ll be alright.

  • Bill Logan April 22, 2012, 2:29 pm

    On the managers and professionals test what is the pass score?
    I sat the test on Saturday, the officials at Pearson said they could not help with my scoring or what questions I got wrong.
    Is there any difference between the above test / revision book and the operatives test /book which you need for a regular visitors pass.


  • Josh April 23, 2012, 9:15 pm

    Damian you still got those questions ? Any chance you’d be able to send them over. Have my test this week. Would be great?

  • Neola May 29, 2012, 9:53 pm

  • joshua June 18, 2012, 11:21 am


  • glenn johnson July 3, 2012, 1:27 pm

    so they give us 12 test questions then give us the answers for the first set!is this some kind of a joke ?
    this company is a money grabbing joke stealth tax!and there advertising the cscs test handbooks that there selling on AMAZON!£9.52 for a new one?if this card was for the health and safety of people then the there would be free mock tests in full and learning information on the net not trying to make cash from dvds books test and cards.Construction industry taxed again %20 on every penny i earn just aint enough for them!
