How to Register for a Praxis Test

Before you register

Some test takers may need to follow a different registration process than what’s outlined below. Be sure to read these policies if they apply to you.


How to register

The fastest, easiest way to register for a Praxis test is online through your Praxis account. Ready to begin?



Have questions? Read our Online Registration FAQ (PDF).

You can also register by phone or by mail. Whichever method you choose, make sure that the name you use to register exactly matches the name on the primary ID you’ll use on test day. If it doesn’t, you won’t be able to test and you’ll forfeit your test fees. Read more about ID requirements.


To register by phone, you must have a Praxis account and be testing at a U.S. test center. There’s an additional $35 surcharge to use this service. At least 4 days before your test date, call ETS at 1-800-772-9476 Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time, and pay by credit/debit card, eCheck or PayPal®.

  1. Complete the Test Authorization Voucher Request Form and mail it to ETS. Use the code lists to fill out your form. (See below for both.)
  2. Once your request is processed, a voucher number will be sent to you, along with instructions on how to register. Allow 3 weeks for delivery of the voucher.
  3. If you registered for a test center appointment, print your admission ticket from your Praxis account and bring it with you to the test center. Your ticket won’t be mailed to you.

Fees and payment policies

The test fee varies by test. Select your test from the list to see the test fee.

Fees are subject to change without notice. Taxes will be added, if applicable. Nevada charges a $5 surcharge on all Praxis Subject Tests. For fees in Indiana, see Indiana Test Fees. For a complete list of fees in all other states, including special service and score review fees, as well as the tax policies, see the Bulletin.

For a complete list of fee and payment policies, including acceptable forms of payment for online, phone and mail registration, see the Bulletin.


Rescheduling, canceling and refunds

To reschedule or cancel your test, log in to your Praxis account or call ETS Customer Service. Do this at least 3 days before your test date, not including the day of your test, to avoid forfeiting your fee. If you cancel your test at least 3 days before your test date, you may be eligible for a 50% refund of your test fees. The remainder of your payment will be retained to cover expenses for processing your registration and holding space at the test center.


Refund policy

You’re only entitled to a refund if you cancel your registration as outlined above. If you’re absent from or arrive too late to take your test, or if you don’t follow ID requirements or any other test center procedures, you aren’t eligible for a refund.

For a complete list of refund policies and procedures, including how and when refunds are processed, see the Bulletin.


Retaking a test

To retake a test, you must wait at least 28 days after your previous test date. This applies even if you canceled your scores from your previous test. For the full retest policy, see the Bulletin.
