Registration, Test Centers and Dates

All Praxis® tests are delivered by computer, except for Braille Proficiency (0633). Some tests are offered continuously while others are offered in testing windows that occur several times a year. See Test Centers and Dates.

Note: For those tests not delivered by computer, the registration process is different than what is outlined below. Learn how to register for the Braille Proficiency (0633).

Register for the Test

Before You Register:

  • Review the policies in The Praxis® Information Bulletin.
  • Check your state testing requirements to see which test(s) are required for licensure in your state.
  • See Test Fees for fees and acceptable forms of payment.
  • If you require accommodations for disabilities or health-related needs, you must apply for accommodations through ETS Disability Services prior to registering. Allow at least six weeks for the review process. See Disability Accommodations for important instructions on how to apply.

Testing Outside the United States

World Language Test Takers:
Praxis World Language testing outside the United States is available if you are taking a test for employment, certification or entrance into a teacher education program in the United States. To take a test internationally, log on to view available testing sites. Please be aware that there may not be a test center in your immediate vicinity. Please contact the Praxis program at praxis@ets.org if there are no test centers available in the registration system. We will register you at the center nearest you. In some cases, you may need to make long-distance travel arrangements to get to the nearest test center.

Register Online

  • Register online for a test with a credit/debit card or PayPal®.
  • Print your admission ticket and bring it with you to the test center. Your admission ticket is important because it contains the test center address and reporting time on test day. While you are not required to present it at the test center, test center personnel may ask you for it. It is better to have a hard copy because test personnel may not accept an image of the ticket on your phone.

(Note: If you take a combined test, such as the Elementary Education: Multiple Subjects Test or the PA Grades 4–8 Core Assessment, you cannot retake a subtest until after the 21-day period.)

This applies even if you canceled your scores on a test taken previously. If you violate this restriction, the scores from your retest will not be reported and your test fees will not be refunded.
