1. When will I receive my test results?

You get your detailed score report at the test center, immediately after you complete your tests. Test results may also be viewed in the myASE section of our website.

Test results cannot be released over the phone. Failure to make full payment of test and/or registration fees will result in ASE withholding test results.

Reminder: If you change your address after you take the tests, you must notify ASE to receive mailed test results, be notified of expiring certifications, and receive the ASE Blue Seal Tech News newsletter. To update your address, log onto myASE or click here and send us a message.

2. Can I get my test results via e-mail or the ASE website?

ASE does not release test results via e-mail. Broadcasting your test results via e-mail can present security risks due to inaccurate e-mail addresses or unsecure e-mail transmissions. However, you can securely view your certification status online through our service called myASE.

3. Why can’t I see the questions I missed? How do I know what to study if you won’t tell me what I got wrong?

We wish we could show everyone the questions they missed, but we can’t. Each ASE test question is written and approved by a panel of industry experts and then statistically validated by hundreds or thousands of actual test-takers. If we publicly released the questions for study purposes, anyone could memorize the answers, and the questions couldn’t be used in tests in the future. Writing entirely new questions each time the tests are given would be costly and would result in poorer quality, less-fair exams because the questions couldn’t be validated in advance. So, keeping the questions secure allows ASE to keep test fees down and also maintains the fairness of the tests.

While we can’t release the test questions, we do have some suggestions to help you study. First, become familiar with the format of the ASE test questions. Second, get a copy of the task list (blueprint) for the ASE test you are taking, and use it to perform an honest self-assessment of your knowledge. Third, look to NATEF-accredited and CASE-approved training programs for additional training resources. All this and more is explained in detail on the Test Prep and Training page.

4. What do I receive to prove that I am ASE certified?

When you pass one or more tests and fulfill the work experience requirement, you will receive the Blue Seal of Excellence: the nationally recognized ASE emblem on a certificate suitable for framing. Also included will be a wallet card that lists your areas of certification and expiration dates. In addition, you will also receive the award-winning newsletter, the ASE Blue Seal Tech News.

Certificates are mailed at the end of the each testing window. Certificates include an expiration date:  June 30 or December 31, depending on when you earn your certification. The expiration dates are also shown in myASE, and we will send you reminders before your credentials expire so you can recertify.

5. How do I get duplicate credentials?

The cost for duplicate credentials is $7.50 per test series (i.e., Automobile, Medium/Heavy Truck, Parts Specialist, etc.) You can get an order form on the Download Forms page.
