The GED Test will be changing in 2014. If you still need to take the test, now is the time to prepare.
If you think you have good skills in reading, writing and math and think you are ready to take the test, you can take the GED Practice Test, which you have to take and pass to register for the actual GED exam in D.C. For information on the days and times we offer the GED Practice Test, click here.
If you think you need to improve your reading, writing and math skills for the GED test, you can call our Literacy Helpline at 202-727-2431 for information about organizations that offer classes. You can also use our directory to find classes as well. Click here for our directory which lists GED and literacy classes.
