ASE Introduces Remote Recertification Testing Option

Nov. 16, 2022

Individuals seeking recertification from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence now have the choice to take the test remotely. 

Nov. 16, 2022—The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence has announced the introduction of a remote testing option for ASE recertification tests, according to a press release. 

This option is made possible through a partnership between ASE and Prometric. As a result, ASE will offer ProProctor remote testing as a choice for individuals interested in becoming recertified. This remote option is being made available as an optional route. In-person testing will still be available as well. 

Regardless of the choice to take the test in-person or remotely, the screen experience and the test driver will be the same. The remote testing option will still require a check-in and screening process that is similar to the one conducted at an in-person testing center.

The individual taking the remote test will need to do some preparation ahead of time that includes downloading the ProProctor application to a computer, completing a system check the day before the testing and finding a room that meets Prometric’s requirements of a controlled environment.
