How is the computer-based GED test different from the paper-based GED test? How much does it cost? Each section of the computer-based GED test is $24.00. This fee is paid online at the time of registration. I've already taken a section 3 times this year, which means I have hit the limit and can't test anymore this year, right? Wrong! Since we now offer the computer version of the GED, you are able to take a section more than three times. You have 3 more shots before the end of the year! How do I register for the computer-based GED test? Simple! All you do is go to www.gedtestingservice.com to register. You can pick and choose what sections you want to take, and when you want to take them.
