This page includes a complete listing of GED® prep facilities and testing centers in the Pikeville region. Kentucky is using the entirely computer-formatted GED test for high school equivalency (HSE) testing.
You can take the GED test in an online format and at state-certified testing centers.
HSE testing offers adults that couldn’t graduate high school one more shot at acquiring an equivalent degree.
Testing takes place at a level similar to that of graduating high school seniors.
The General Education Development (GED) test has four separate subtests, or modules, in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Literacy.
You have the freedom to take (and pay for) one of the GED modules at a time.
In Kentucky, first-time testers can take the 4 GED subtests for free under the state’s Skills U program.
Until recently, GED testing could be done exclusively at state-approved test centers. There was no online GED test, but that has now changed with the arrival of a new online GED test-taking option. Read more below.

Online GED testing introduced
Until recently, the GED test was not offered via the internet. If you wanted to secure your GED diploma in Kentucky, your appearance, in person, at one of Kentucky’s official GED test facilities was required. But now, things have changed with the introduction of an online proctored GED testing option.
Today, you have the opportunity to sit for the four GED subtests from the comfort of your home with a format that uses an online proctor that will check if the test-taking process is in line with strict regulations. Go to ‘New Online GED Testing Option’ to learn more.
