  • Advice and help with testing out of state.

    I have testing coming up real soon out of state and I was wondering if anyone who have tested out of state can share their experiences.

    Driving to the testing site is out of the question for me. I know I will be flying, reserving a motel, and getting a rental car for 3 days. How would one go about doing this. This is going to be my very first time testing out of state and would appreciate some step by step advice.

    Thank you so much.

    Some cities will for out if staters

    Suggest you stay as close to test facility as possible

      Yes, they are putting the 3 together (written, physical, interview) over the span of 2-3 days.

      Testing out of state seems to be a very expensive experience but I want to go into this with the right mindset.
