The physical agility test requires applicants to run 1.5 miles within 17 minutes, perform 17 push-ups within one minute, and perform 25 sit-ups within one minute. This testing is only for applicants coming to Napa Valley Police Academy.
The tests are typically given the second Saturday of each month. The cost of the entry level peace officer exam is $20.00. This includes the written exam and physical agility test. The cost to take only the physical agility test is the same. Please note: This fee is non-refundable.
The results from the written exam and physical agility test are valid for use to enter a basic academy class for up to 12 months before the start date of an academy class.
