ASE certification tests are computerized tests given in a proctored testing center. The center gives the test taker the results of the test immediately after taking the test. The website offers a “free test drive” to allow the test taker to see how the test looks at the test center. The site also offers official practice test for $14.95.
ASE offers several certification test series, including tests in auto maintenance and light repair, automobile and light truck, collision repair and refinishing, and alternative fuels. Additional tests include advanced engine performance specialist testing and light-duty hybrid/electric vehicle specialist testing.
