Q855: How many times can I apply to the police if I am unsuccessful at any stage?

If you fail the fitness test or are unsuccessful at interview/assessment centre, you can reapply after a period of 6 months has passed from the date of rejection. There is no limit on the number of times you can apply. The exception to this is the Standard Entrance Exam which you only have 3 opportunities to pass.
