CBEST Registration Info, Fees & Testing Center Locations

Current 2018-19 CBEST Registration Info, Costs & Testing Sites...

Below you will find a general overview of CBEST registration info and testing fees, as well as a list of CBEST computer-based testing center locations. 

For current 2018-19 California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) computer-based administrations, testing is by appointment during certain testing windows and registration may be completed online at www.ctcexams.nesinc.com.  For paper-based CBEST administrations, testing is held on certain fixed test dates, and test-takers must register by the corresponding registration deadlines.

The regular CBEST registration fee for the paper-based CBEST exam is $41 (an additional fee of $61 will apply should you decide to take the computer-based test).  However, there is also an additional $18 fee for late registration, and an additional $35 fee for "emergency registration," so we generally recommend that our students plan their test dates and register for the CBEST well in advance, if possible, to avoid these additional registration costs.  Click below to view a current listing of test dates and CBEST registration deadlines...

View 2018-19 CBEST Test Dates and Registration Deadlines

The CBEST is comprised of three subtests: Math, Reading, and Writing.  These sections may be taken together or separately, and may be passed at separate test administrations.  If you register for the paper-based exam, you will automatically be registered for all three sections, though you may take only certain sections, if you wish.  If you register for the computer-based exam, you will have the option to select the specific subtests you wish to take.  The cost is the same regardless of the number of subtests in which you enroll, so it is usually advantageous to register for as many CBEST sections as you feel comfortable taking at a given sitting.  Keep in mind that once you register for the CBEST, you may not change your section selection (unless you withdraw and re-register), so be sure to plan ahead regarding the sections you wish to take.
