The Royal Navy Beep Test

The Beep Test part of the Royal Navy Fitness Test (RNFT) should not be taken lightly. Reaching the levels shown above isn’t easy without training. Unfortunately, we’ve heard many stories of applicants who have failed because they did not meet the required standard through lack of training.

It’s recommended that all applicants fully prepare for the fitness test and this website is one of the only places where you can get a copy of the official 20m beep test.

Get your copy of The Beep Test

We supply a full copy of the 20m beep Test through our online shop in both CD and MP3 formats.

Both the CD and MP3 versions include the following tests (Royal Navy applicants only need to practice the 20m test):

  • 15m Beep Test
  • 20m Beep Test
  • Press-up Beep Test
  • Sit-up Beep Test

What is The Beep Test?

The Beep Test (Bleep Test or Multi Stage Fitness Test) involves running back and forth between two set points, 20m apart, in time with the ‘beeps’. The time between beeps then gets shorter for each new level of the test. The level reached by the applicant determines how long they can continue before having to stop.

Please be wary of downloading other beep tests, as you will find that they are not the official version, poor quality and differ in many ways to actual fitness test you’re trying to pass.
