You cannot take the Automotive Service Excellence certification test online since ASE only offers the tests in proctored testing centers. However, you can purchase some ASE practice exams online to familiarize yourself with the exam format.
ASE restricts certification tests to test centers to give everyone a fair testing environment and confirm the identities of the people taking the examinations. As of 2015, ASE offers more than 40 tests for services such as collision repair, truck parts, car repair and school bus repair. Examinees may take the exams during the day, the night or on weekends from over 450 test centers and satellite sites. Check the availability of seats before settling on a particular test center or date.
You may prepare for the ASE test exams by taking online sample tests. As of 2015, only the auto parts test, the automobile and light truck certification sample exams are available online. ASE offers multiple-choice tests with time limits ranging between one and two hours. Examiners do not allow the use of calculators or any other electronic devices within the test centers. All tests begin with a short tutorial to familiarize examinees with computer-based testing; results are available immediately after the test.
