Test Centers for Computer-Based Testing

Computer-based testing (CBT) is available at more than 225 Pearson Professional Centers throughout the United States and its territories (e.g., Puerto Rico), as well as at over 30 international test centers, including in Canada and Mexico.

Refer to the Pearson VUE Web site at www.pearsonvue.com/vcla for up-to-date information about computer-based test centers, including test center addresses, real-time seat availability, and locations of test centers outside of Virginia.

You should register as early as possible before your desired test date as seating is limited. You will select your test center as part of the test-scheduling process. You will receive confirmation of your test center location, including directions to the test center, after you have scheduled your test appointment.

VCLA computer-based testing is available at Pearson test centers in the following Virginia locations:

Test Areas for Paper-Based Testing

When registering, indicate your choice of geographic test area. Your specific test site will be determined based on availability and appropriateness of facilities for test administration and will be within the areas listed but not necessarily within the actual city limits. Register as early as possible to increase your chances of being assigned to a test site within your first-choice area. When registering by mail, be sure to select a second-choice test area in case space is not available at a test site within your first-choice area.

Every effort will be made to assign you to a site within your first- or second-choice test area; however, this may not be possible, as test site assignments depend upon available space. A request to be assigned to a specific testing facility within a test area or a request to be changed from one testing facility to another within the same test area cannot be accommodated.

The name and address of your test site assignment will be provided on your admission ticket.
