Before you take the real test, you can take the practice test to see what kind of questions you can expect during the real test and see how our test system works.
Before your test begins you will be asked to take a picture of yourself with and without your ID using your web camera. This is to validate your identity.
Before you test we have to make sure that your are the person that you say you are. We do this by looking at your Government ID (such as your passport) and compare it with the name you have given us. This is to protect you from fraudsters trying to steal your scores and to prevent cheating.
