About This Quiz

Being a Secret Service Agent is a tough job. The Secret Service are agents that protect the President and Vice-President of America and their families. They also defend former Presidents and Vice Presidents and their children as well. It is an exciting job that requires a unique personality. 

You could be doing anything from protecting the current President as he travels to an important meeting with foreign dignitaries or you could be hanging out in a guesthouse on an oceanfront estate protecting a retired president and doing absolutely nothing. But that is the hard part, even if you're doing nothing for weeks or even months on end; as a Secret Service Agent, you always have to be prepared for anything, even in the middle of the night, even if there has been no sign of danger.

Do you think you have what it takes to be a Secret Service Agent? They don't just let anyone in, you know. The first thing you would have to do to even be considered is to pass a Secret Service Entrance Exam. The questions aren't easy, and they shouldn't be. Protecting the President is a big responsibility after all. Do you think you're up for it? Take this quiz to find out.
