The Florida Gulf Coast University Testing Center contracts with Miami-Dade College to administer the Florida Basic Abilities Test (FBAT) needed for law enforcement, corrections and probation officers.

There are two separate FBAT exams:

  • Law Enforcement (LEBAT)
  • Corrections (COBAT)

FBAT testing is available at the FGCU Testing Center, every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday at 11:00AM or 3:00PM by appointment only. The test takes approximately 90-120 minutes to complete and is computer-based. The cost is a total of $57.50 ($27.50 registration fee + $30 test fee). Test results are available to the examinee immediately following the conclusion of the exam; results are pass or fail.

Retest Policy

  • If you fail the FBAT you may retake the exam up to three times within a 12-month period. You may make three attempts per discipline within a 12-month period. There is a 24-hour waiting period required between retakes. Test results are valid for four years from the date of the test.

    For special accommodations call Miami-Dade College, FBAT main office at 305-237-1722.

*Please note that the Miami Dade College FBAT Department sends the official FBAT test results electronically to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). The FBAT Department does not send results to individual state agencies. Please contact the FBAT Department at 1-800-237-8910 if you have any questions.
