I have already taken an occupational exam for another Federal agency. Do I still have to take an exam as an ATF special agent applicant?

All special agent applicants must take and pass the ATF Special Agent Exam and an applicant assessment test. ATF is no longer using the Treasury Enforcement Agent (TEA) Exam. Results from an ATF sponsored exam are valid for three years from the date of the exam. Sample questions for the ATF Special Agent Exam can be found at the “Careers” section of this website.
