Remember, Every Question and Answer Matters!  
This practice test contains Q&As created from Robert Fischer et al's Introduction to Security and Pamela Collins' Principles of Security and Crime Prevention, Illinois Criminal and Civil laws, and the Administrative Rules for License holders. All are  are sources for the Illinois Private Security Contractor License Exam. No time limit.

Many who failed their Illinois License Test did so because they didn't have enough time to read and assess all the questions and answers. Becoming familiar with the terms, definitions, and concepts will help you recognize concepts, terms, etc., more quickly. Consequently, you won't have to waste time reading and re-reading the same material on Test Day.   

On Test Day you'll have about 65 seconds to reply to each question (75 Qs divided by 90 minutes test time = 65 seconds average for each question.).
