Online GED Testing

Until recently, there was never an online option to take the GED exam. If you wanted to get hold of a GED diploma, you had to show up in person at an official Florida GED testing center and pass the four GED subtests.

Now, with the arrival of an online GED testing option, that has all changed. An online proctor will be guiding you through the test-taking process. Check out this article: ‘The online GED test,’ to learn more. Note, however, that Florida suspended the online GED test on 1-10-2024.
