Retake Registration

You must wait 31 calendar days before retaking a failed test; otherwise, your second score will be invalidated. (Please note that examinees must also wait 31 calendar days before participating in a score verification session.)

To retake a test or subtest, you must submit a new registration and pay the retake fee.

The following guidelines apply to examinees retaking a test or subtest:

  • For the FELE and the General Knowledge Test, you need to retake only the subtests that you did not pass.
  • Examinees who took the FELE prior to January 2014 and passed only one or two of the three subtests will be required to take and pass the revised FELE in its entirety.
  • German K–12 and Speech 6–12 have two sections; you need to retake only the section that you did not pass.
  • For any other test that you do not pass, you must retake the entire test.

No extra testing time is given to examinees who are retaking a test or subtest.

For information on retake fees, please review Fees and Payment Information.
