Q:

How do you register for the postal battery exam?

A:

Applicants need to visit the employment page of the USPS website or call the toll-free number listed on the website to register for the postal battery exam. The phone or Internet system leads applicants through the process of providing application information and registering.

Test date notifications are found on the USPS website home page, public bulletin boards in post offices and other federal buildings, state employment offices, media announcements, and community groups and organizations. After an applicant registers, the USPS sends a packet with instructions, sample questions and a notice of where and when to report at least a week prior to the exam.

To pass the exam, applicants must receive a score of at least 70 in addition to satisfying other criteria. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, but those with a high school diploma are allowed to apply at 16. Prospective employees must also be U.S. citizens or aliens with permanent residency, and they must have the ability to speak and read English. Men who are at least 18 years old must be registered with the Selective Service System. Applicants are also required to undergo a drug screening test. As a part of the application process, employment histories, military histories and criminal records are checked. For jobs that require operating a vehicle, driving records are also checked.
