Taking the GED Test

When it’s time to take one of the subject area tests (Math, English, Science, Social Studies), your instructor will provide a voucher to register for a test section. Testing is offered at the Pearson Testing Center (PTC) on the Lord Fairfax Community College Middletown campus, as well as at other PTC locations in the area.

Once you have successfully passed each of the four subject area tests, your GED is officially complete! We will continue to work with you every step of the way as you work towards that goal.
