GED® Testing Information

(Test series starting January 2014)

  • Tests are computer based and have to be taken at an approved GED® testing center
  • The GED has 4 tests or modules that can be taken in any order (click the tab "What are the 4 tests like?" on the left side for information about each test)

From Pearson Vue sent on 4/28/16:

We have become aware of an intermittent problem with the online test taker registration system. In rare instances, the calendar of available seat time fails to appear for testers during registration. The full test schedule is available in Registration Manager, and testers are encouraged to contact the call center to complete the scheduling process. This issue is a top priority to resolve, and the engineering team is working on a fix. In the meantime, please encourage testers to reach out to the call center.
Thank you,
Pearson VUE

If you are having trouble scheduling an appointment please call PearsonVue call center for assistance at 1-877-392-6433 option #6 and then option #1.
