Registration Process:

  • Registration is done on a first come first serve basis. The first 50 people to sign up for an exam will be able to test.

  •  Payment is due to reserve a seat at least 10 business days prior to the exam.  The confirmation and receipt of payment will be brought to the facility with a State Drivers License or Photo Identification Card. 

  • If the candidate is not able to provide a credit card through our online registration system, then a bank certified check or money order can be dropped off and/or mailed to our facility. Our mailing address is PO Box 213, Shelton, CT 06484.   Payments must be received at least 10 business days in advance of the test.

  • Payment is non-refundable. In the event that we cancel the exam (inclement weather, or any other catastrophic reason), money will be transferred to another test date.  If a test date is cancelled because the minimum amount of students hasn’t been met, a refund will be given or candidates can apply the payment to the next available exam date.

  • In case of inclement weather, the candidates will be notified via email of a cancellation.
