GREAT SERVICE STARTS HERE
O'Reilly Automotive intends to be the dominant supplier of auto parts in our market areas by offering our retail customers, professional installers, and jobbers the best combination of price and quality provided with the highest possible service level.
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is an independent, non-profit organization that has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals since 1972. ASE promotes excellence in vehicle repair, service, and parts distribution. ASE certification is nationally recognized and demonstrates to our customers that we are Professional Parts People. O’Reilly Auto Parts strongly supports ASE certification, and all parts specialists are encouraged to participate and become ASE certified.
ASE testing is available year-round. When you register for an ASE Certification Test, you will have 90 days from the original date of purchase to schedule an appointment and take your test.
PREPARING FOR THE TEST
- The Official ASE Practice Tests are available for purchase and delivered exclusively online. You can try out questions of similar content and format to those used on the real ASE certification tests. The practice tests provide feedback in the form of a performance report with explanations for both correct and incorrect answers.
- The free ASE Study Guides help you gauge your test readiness and are available for download in PDF format. They include details on the individual tests and sample questions.
- Click here to view the entire Test Prep & Training section of the ASE website.
