  • Getting ready to test

    I just received a letter from POST stating that I am eligible to take the reciprocity test. I'll be flying out in the next couple of weeks to get that completed. I have been reviewing the Code of Criminal Procedures, Traffic Code, etc. My question is-- is there any study guide that is available for purchase?
    In Texas there were several "cliff notes" type publications that detailed elements and punishments. Has anyone taken the reciprocity test and could give a couple of pointers?
    Anything would be appreciated,
    John

    nope there is no study guide, from what I have heard there are several versions of that test one is traffic heavy one is juvenile heavy I took the standard POST in June from that I can tell you don't waste time memorizing code numbers just know the elements of the crimes, know when you can arrest on warrants, night capped, and hours and what not, KNOW 5th degree Domestic, victim rights all that stuff

      I took the reciprocity test and their really was no study guide except what is on the POST website. Study those statues inside and out. Spent days upon days in those code books. Studying sucked, the test was worse. Don't worry about actual fine amounts for certain felonies like I did. Overstudied that part of it.

        When I took the test (1998) it was the FBI part 1 crimes, murder, rape, robbery etc..., some DUI and other traffic stuff and juvenile stuff for the most part.

          Get a hold of an elemnts book for sure. You can order one from online at the MN County attorney's Asso. Heres the LINK

          Traffic code is good to know (pretty much universal). Actually the seat belt law is good to know. Some questions will be scenerio. How many tags can you write for a guy you pulled over for a headlight out, No proof of insurance, and a four year old child unrestrainind in the back seat, and an unrestrained 19 year old in the back seat? <<< stuff like that.

          I'll send a prayer for you too.
          Oh... Oh... I know you di-int!

            Thanks again everyone for the insight and links. I ordered the element book tonight. The statues are quite a bit different than Texas, but wrong is still wrong just different definitions. Also it was nice being able to throw 17 yr olds in big boy jail .

                  I think the answer is three..headlight out, no proof, and the four year old unrestrained...19 in the backseat is legal.

                  Heres one that is on the post test you pull a motorcycle over for speeding on the freeway after dark. There is a the driver and a rider on the vehicle. The rider only has a motorcycle permit, is 17 and neither is wearing a helmet. How many tags can you write?

                      vehicle in which the violation occurred is subject to a $25 fine
