This article includes an overview of GED prep locations and test centers in and around Torrance. California offers two options for high school equivalency testing: the GED and HiSET.
You can take these exams both online and at state-certified testing centers. Learn more about online testing below.
The HiSET® and GED® assessments give adults who quit high school prematurely the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
Both exams assess knowledge at a level comparable to that of graduating high school students.
The GED must be done entirely on a computer and has four separate subtests (modules) in
- Social Studies
- Language Arts
The HiSET includes five testing fields (separate writing and reading tests) that can be taken on a computer or on paper.
You have the liberty to sit for the HiSET or GED subtests one at a time.
Not all options are available at all test centers. Please check below or with a testing center near you which exam(s) they administer.
If you want to read more about the cost of GED or HiSET or eligibility requirements in California, visit our page “GED In California.”

Online GED, HiSET Testing
You can now take the GED and HiSET exams online as well. Until recently, if you were looking to earn a GED, you needed to come, in person, to an official California GED testing center.
Well, that has all changed! The GED and HiSET exams are now also offered online with a proctor who will check if everything goes in line with some rather strict regulations. To learn more, check out the following pages: ‘The online GED test,’ and for HiSET testing: ‘The online HiSET test.’
