Both the Security Guard and Private Investigator tests are in a written, 60 question, multiple choice format. Test appointments are 2 hours in duration, 75 minutes of which is the allotted test completion time.
The License Test Fee is $66.50 plus 13% HST for a total of $75.15.
Test results will be made available within 5 business days of completion of the test.
Candidates who are eligible and wish to retain both Security Guard and Private Investigator licences must take and pass both tests. Each test must be scheduled separately. Tests will be offered at 55 locations across Ontario. Please check the Locations link from this web site.
All tests must be booked in advance either online, or through a call centre agent.
You may only register and complete an examination if you hold a currently valid individual Ontario Security Guard or Private Investigator license, or if you have completed mandatory training approved by the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
For candidates that are not licensed by Private Security and Investigative Services Branch, you must complete Ministry prescribed basic training before you become eligible to register for and complete an examination. There are two basic training programs, security guard and private investigator. To write either one of the tests, you must first complete the corresponding training.
If you are already licensed, you may only take the test for which you are licensed, or for which you have taken a Ministry approved training course.
Examinations cannot be cancelled or rescheduled. Once booked, the appointment for the examination is final and the associated fees are not refundable for any reason.
If extremely bad weather makes it necessary for Serco (DriveTest) to close the Test Centre when and where your appointment is scheduled, you will be contacted to arrange an alternate time to book your examination.
