Test Day

In-person Testing

You should arrive about 30 minutes early to the testing center on test day to allow time for the check-in process. After you arrive, you will be asked to sign in and provide two valid forms of government-issued ID.

You will then be asked to place all personal items in a locker outside the testing room, or you may be asked to leave them in your car.

Once the test begins, you will be allowed to take breaks. However, the timer will not be stopped during your break, so use your break time carefully.

Remote Testing

To take the exam remotely, you must use a laptop or desktop computer that does not have touchscreen capabilities (tablets and smartphones are not allowed). You will also need a functioning webcam, speakers, and a microphone.

When you check in to take the exam, the remote proctor will ask you to show proof of identification and to move your webcam around the room so that your testing area can be observed. Once the proctor has approved your testing area, they will walk you through the testing process and begin your exam.
