Who may take the GED test?

“some 3,500 GED testing centers are available in all fifty United States, the District of Colombia, eleven Canadian provinces and territories, U.S. and overseas military bases, correctional institutions,, Veterans Administration hospitals, and certain learning centers.’’

May I retake the test?

“Yes, but the regulations governing the number of times that you may retake the tests and the time you must wait before retaking them are set by your state, province, of territory. ’’ In Arizona, where I took mine they allow me to retake but I have to wait 30 days and pay 10 per test that I want to retake.

(In Arizona) Take Id and Social Security card to register and pay for test. You will need Id and recipt the day’s of testing. They provide paper, pencils, pens and a calculator.

I took my GED tests at Estrella Mountain Community College in Litchfield park, Arizona.<BR>They were very nice and let me bring lunch and water. I was also allowed to take breaks if I needed or wanted to. They also have a little food place where you can buy some food incase you get hungry.
