VTNE Practice Exam Picture

  • We offer two versions of the VTNE online practice test. The tests are designed to assess your strengths and weaknesses in each of the ten domain areas of the VTNE.
  • Each practice test is $50 (paid in US dollars) per attempt.
  • Each practice test contains 75 questions and is 90 minutes.
  • After you take a practice test, you will be provided with diagnostic information by practice domain to assist in planning and preparing for the actual VTNE. Performance on the practice test provides an indication of test readiness, but doesn’t guarantee a similar result on the VTNE.
  • Group discount information for educational institutions.
