This post lists all GED® prep sites and testing centers in the Owensboro region. In Kentucky, you’ll have to pass the GED exam to earn your high school equivalency (HSE) diploma.
You can take the four GED subtests online or at certified test centers.
HSE testing gives adults who did not complete high school one extra chance to earn an equivalent credential.
The GED exam includes four separate subtests in these academic fields: literacy, social studies, science, and math.
The GED exam assesses academic proficiency at a level that’s similar to that of HS seniors upon graduation.
There’s no need to take all four tests in one session. You can take these subtests (modules) one at a time.
First-time testers can take the four GED tests at no cost thanks to the KY Skills U program.
Pass Your GED Test With Confidence.
Get Your GED Diploma Quickly with Onsego.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.
In the past, online GED testing was not possible. You had to come to an official Kentucky GED testing site and take the four subtests in person.
That has now changed, however, as a new online GED testing option was introduced. See more below.

Online proctored GED testing
Until quite recently, sitting for the GED test over the internet was no option. If you wanted to secure your Kentucky GED degree, your personal appearance at one of Kentucky’s official GED test facilities was a requirement. The recent introduction of an online GED testing option, however, has changed this.
You can now also deal with the GED exam through a new online format where an online proctor guides you through the process and checks if everything happens in accordance with all applicable regulations. To read more, go to this page: ‘New online GED testing option’.

Kentucky age requirement
In Kentucky, you need to be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for GED testing. GED applicants that are 18 years old must, however, have been officially withdrawn from their school for no less than 90 days, but local superintendents have the option to waive this 90-day wait time.
State residence is required and all applicants must have a Kentucky mailing address. There’s no need to first attend a GED preparatory course but all test-takers must take and attain satisfactory results on the GED Ready® official practice test before they can register for the real test. You can sit for the GED Ready test at no cost at local adult education centers.
