If you’re looking for the best free website to help you practice for your ServSafe Manager exam, then you’ve found it. We’ve given thousands of real ServSafe Manager exams to real foodservice workers, so we know exactly what kinds of questions will be on your test.

We’ve narrowed it down to what’s most important for you to focus on when practicing for the ServSafe Manager exam. There are “key-concepts” that you need to understand and also “times and temperatures” that you need to memorize.

You can choose to take the practice tests with or without explanations for each answer. To turn them off, tap the button that says “Hide Explanations”. And to turn them back on, tap the button that says “See Explanations”. We advise taking the tests with explanations first and then again without explanations. Good luck!

Start Practicing For Your ServSafe Exam


The first eight practice tests focus on key-concepts that are important for the safety of food in a foodservice operation. Each test has 10 questions that are very similar to the real questions that might be on your exam.

Times & Temperatures

The last four practice tests have 10 questions each and focus on the temperature requirements and time allowances for different types of foods. It’s important that you memorize as many of these as you can, because some of them will be on your ServSafe Manager exam.

Updates for 2024 Exams – 7th Edition ServSafe Food Protection Manager

Updated: July 12, 2024

These ServSafe practice tests are based on the “7th Edition ServSafe Manager” textbook and it’s supplemental updates. The questions are relevant for all ServSafe Manager exams issued in 2024.

Be careful when using online ServSafe practice tests. Many websites have recycled old questions from the “6th Edition ServSafe Essentials” textbook.

Furthermore, there have been supplemental updates to the current 7th Edition ServSafe Manager Book due to changes in the FDA Food Code. Many websites have not incorporated those updates into their ServSafe practice tests.

More information about the changes to the ServSafe Manager curriculum can be found on the ServSafe website here: Food Code Update

About these ServSafe Manager Practice Tests – Questions & Answers

The real ServSafe Manager exam is comprised of 90 questions, but you’re only graded on 80 of them. The extra 10 questions are “pilot questions” to determine if they will be included in future exams. These ServSafe practice tests only have 20 questions each and you will be graded on all of them.

Just like the real ServSafe Manager exam, these ServSafe practice tests are multiple-choice with four possible answers. You need to score at least 75% in order to pass the real exam.
