Abilities Test

The Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Test, or CJ-BAT, is administered by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and an outside entity called Pearson VUE.   The location of the testing center is the Broward College Public Safety Building on BC Campus in Davie.  

You may apply online to take the CJ-BAT here.  The cost of the CJ-BAT is $39.00 and is paid to Pearson via their online portal.   

If you wish to take the CJ-BAT at Broward College, the test is only offered Mondays and Tuesday at 11 a.m., at the Davie Campus.   If you wish to take the test at another location in Florida, please see options available on the Pearson VUE website when signing up. 

We encourage all applicants to study for their CJ-BAT examination.    

Study guides and practice tests may be purchased online through Pearson at this link.
