Can You Take the Tests Online?

NO!  In order to take any high school equivalency test (GED, HiSET or TASC), you must go to an official testing center to take the test. The tests can be taken on a computer, but you cannot take the test online from your home. Be wary of websites that claim to give GED, TASC or HiSET certificates or high school diplomas online - they are online GED scams and illegal in most states.
