GED TESTING The GED test is FREE to anyone. However, candidates must first pass an OPT Practice Test and obtain a test ticket prior to taking the official GED test. You may contact the SPOKES/Adult Basic Education Instructor, Lisa Hamrick, at the Valley Fork Center located at Wallback at 587-1191 for additional information about GED classes or to schedule a time to take the practice test and to get your test ticket.

All 2002 Series GED Test scores for partial test completers will expire on December 31, 2013. This means that, if you are a GED candidate who has taken the test anytime since 2002 but has not passed all five parts of the test, you will need to complete your testing by December 31, 2013 or start all over again in 2014 with the new GED test.
