To take the GED® test in Florida, most counties will request a government-issued ID and Social Security card at the testing facility. NOTE: If you do not have a Social Security number, a record locator number will be assigned to you by the State GED office. Most Florida counties will also require that you be a resident of the area. Please contact your local GED Testing Center for more information on requirements in your county.
Usually one needs to be 18 years of age or older to take the test. However individuals under the age of 18 may be granted a GED® age waiver by their local school district. Call your district superintendent’s office for more information on how you can qualify to take the GED® test if you are 16 or 17 years of age.
You must not be enrolled at an accredited high school, graduated from an accredited high school or have already received a high school equivalency diploma.
