General Educational Development (GED) Tests
Am I Eligible to Take the GED Test?
You may take the GED test if:
• You are not enrolled in high school
• You have not graduated from high school
• You are at least 16 years old. (In California, the minimum age required to take the GED® test is 18 years old.)
• You meet state, provincial, or territorial requirements regarding age, residency, and the length of time since leaving school
If you are considering leaving high school, the GED Testing Service recommends that you first meet with your high school counselor to talk seriously about your decision and the level of academic skill needed to pass the GED test.

Can I take the GED Test at a Military Education Center?
To gain access to an on-base test center, you must have a valid government ID and authorization to enter the base. Civilians without a valid government ID and authorization to enter the base will be turned away by the testing center and/or military gate security. Your exam will be recorded as a 'No Show', and you will not receive a refund for your missed exam.
