This is an overview of all GED prep classes and testing facilities in the Roanoke region. Virginia is using the computer-based GED exam for high school equivalency testing.
The GED test is available online and at state-approved Virginia GED test centers.
The exam gives adults who did not finish high school the opportunity to earn an equivalent credential.
Testing occurs at a level comparable to that of HS seniors upon graduation.
There are four GED® subtests in Literacy, Social Studies, Math, and Science that may be completed one test at a time.
Online GED testing had, until recently, never been possible. You were always required to come to a state-designated test center and sit for the tests in person.
Well, this has changed now with the introduction of the online proctored GED testing option. To learn more, check the information at the bottom of this page.

Introducing Online Proctored GED Testing
In the past, you couldn’t sit for the GED exam via the internet. If you wanted to secure your GED diploma, you always had to present yourself at an official Virginia GED testing facility.
This has now changed. Recently, we saw the launch of a new online GED testing option. Qualifying GED students now have the choice to take the GED test from the comfort of their homes.
An online proctor will monitor their testing activities and check if all happens in line with the rules. If you would like to read about this great new development, go to ‘The online proctored GED test.’
