Test Retakes

If you did not pass one of your GED® test subjects, you are given two subsequent retests, with no restrictions between retakes. If you fail the third or any subsequent retest, you must wait 60 days for your next attempt. Additional state requirements may apply.

The price of the GED® test and any test retakes varies from state to state. GED Testing Service will waive its fees for retests of failed subject tests, and both states and test centers have the option to do the same if they choose. After receiving two retakes at the reduced price, the price of the test subject returns to the regular price. If you do not pass that subject again, you will receive two more retakes at the reduced rate. Click here to find your test retake price.
