All candidates applying to Toyota will be asked to complete online aptitude tests. Depending on the business area and position, you will be asked to complete a combination of the following tests:
- Toyota Situational Judgement Test
- Toyota Personality Test
- Toyota Mechanical Reasoning
A. Toyota Situational Judgement Test
Toyota’s Situational Judgement Test strives to assess your main skills in coping with unfamiliar work-related situations that you are likely to encounter when working at Toyota. This test will determine whether your values and decision-making reflect what Toyota search for in their candidates.
There is no right or wrong answer, and a lot will depend on what Toyota’s key values are. Remember that there are certain skills which are always sought after regardless of positions, such as: determination, integrity, passion and interest, and ability to work in a team – but also to take initiative and lead.
Tip: In this exercise, often all answers seem like appropriate options. They will all have some good qualities – in the end you need to use your own judgement. If something feels right to you, then this is the answer you should go for. This test is designed in such a way that if you manipulate answers and cheat, your responses will be flagged up – so stay honest and real.

B. Toyota Personality Test
This is another type of a psychometric test that examines your ability to fit into the specific role you applied to, as well as the work culture at Toyota. You will be presented with a number of statements, such as ‘I adapt easily to new situations’ or ‘I have an analytical mind’, and will be required to choose the ones that describe you best. The trick is, that in all cases you will face a trade-off between many of the desirable qualities. You will not be able to state that you make new friends easily, like to learn languages, are determined and hard-working, and enjoy solving complex problems.
Tip: Do not manipulate your responses as these tests are designed to flag up any inconsistencies. Be honest with your answers, but remember that some of your qualities or skills might be more desirable than others for this specific position at Toyota.

C. Toyota Maintenance Aptitude Test
This is a Toyota-specific assessment. It will take roughly 3 hours to complete.
This aptitude test can cover a wide range of questions, and will examine your ability to understand and apply mechanical concepts to problem solving. These can vary from particular physics fields, such as electricity, to mechanics and kinematics.
Tip: Revising all GCSE Physics topics is a minimum. Take time to consider how these theoretical concepts can be applied to the position you applied for.
Tip: Questions in the Toyota Maintenance Aptitude test will be based more on your reasoning and application of theoretical concepts, rather than performing complicated calculations. Focus on your accuracy.
