The GED test is for adults who do not have a high school diploma. Those who pass the test receive a California High School Equivalency Certificate.


In California, persons who are 18 years of age or older may take the GED test. Some 17 year olds who meet the specific criteria for testing may also take the test.


Testing centers throughout California give the test many times during the year. The GED test covers five subjects: reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. 


There is a fee to take the test.
