Navy ASVAB Practice Test

Take a sample Armed Services Vocation Aptitude Battery test for the Navy. Begin with part one of our Navy ASVAB sample test below:

Navy ASVAB Test, Pt. 1

Get ready for your career with the Navy by taking our Navy ASVAB practice tests. Complete part 1 then take the rest of our 10 sections.

The minimum score requirement to be enlisted as an active duty member of the Navy or the Navy Reserve for non-prior service applicants is 35. If you score less than a 50 on the test you must have an education status defined as Tier 1, meaning high school diploma or 15 semester hours of college credit. However many jobs within the Navy require a much higher score, so generally a ASVAB score of 35 is not desirable.
