GED Testing Centers

GED Testing Centers

This information is currently up to date, but will probably change when the GED exam is completely revamped in 2014. Until then, you can rely on this information.

Interested persons can locate a test center with relative ease, since there are over 3,000 testing locations around the world. Across the United States, all fifty states have individual GED Test Centers, commonly found at community colleges, state colleges, and other independent educational centers. When contacting an Official GED Testing Center, you should request their normal business hours and their exact location in case the address has changed. Furthermore, you may find out about another Testing Center closer to your location that is not listed in the zip code locator (shown below).

You can find the address of an Official GED Testing Center by zip code in the United States at the following web address:
