    Available seat counts will be updated as registrations are processed.

    - The calendar shows the number of seats available for testing for that date.
    - The Testing Center, may, at its discretion, impose "blackout dates", or reduce the number of available testing seats on certain days of the week in order to accommodate other types of tests.

    - Select up to three (3) test dates: one preferred date, and two alternate dates.

    - All registrations are date/time stamped and will be processed in the order received.
    - Be flexible. If there are no seats available on the preferred or alternate test dates chosen, the Testing Center will contact you by phone or e-mail to re-schedule your test on a date with available seats.
    - SUBMIT ONLY ONE REQUEST. It may take up to seven (7) days to process your request.

  3. Check your e-mail.
