Specific scores are required for application to certain programs or in order to successfully complete a program (see individual program pages). In an effort to avoid over-whelming students enrolled in career classes, we recommend that students complete testing and upgrading prior to career enrollment.

Only students 16 years of age and older may test. Parent permission is required for 16 and 17 year olds. Minor Permission Form.

You may not be required to take the TABE if you graduated from a Florida public high school in 2007 or later with a standard diploma, if you are active duty U.S. military, or you have earned a college degree. Meet with the school counselor to see if you qualify for the exemption.
