using 1 or 2 spaces after a period

I know it is common practice among writers to use only 1 space after a
period, but what is the rule in general? Our company produces tests for
legal and professional secretaries as part of what we do and I've been
asked to show, in writing, which to use - 1 or 2 spaces after a period -
in a typing test.

I'm searching through all my styleguides, but none of them have anything
about this particular rule. Any help is appreciated!!!!!

thanks,
stef
