Test Day

General Information

  • If you are taking the Official CLT on one of our public, Saturday test dates, please see our Student Test Day Checklist. 

  • If you are taking the Official CLT, CLT10, or CLT8 in school, your school will provide you with instructions.

  • If you are taking the CLT10 or CLT8 at home, instructions will be emailed to both your email and your emergency contact email in the weeks leading up to test day.

Browser and Software Requirements 

  • The best browser for the CLT, CLT10, and CLT8 exams is Chrome (which may be downloaded here for free), although Internet Explorer/EdgeSafari, and Firefox are also generally compatible. We do not recommend using a browser other than these four.

  • Make sure your device has completed any necessary updates before test day and is fully up-to-date.

  • Test your device by submitting a practice test. These may be accessed on the “Practice” tab on your CLT account. Open a practice test, select a random answer from each of the three sections, and submit. If your device can perform these tasks without difficulty, it should be able to run the test.


Take advantage of the free practice tests available on the “Practice” tab on your CLT account. Submit your practice tests and receive your scores instantly, along with detailed answer explanations for each question. Additional practice tests are available in the CLT Student Guide, which may be purchased on the “Dashboard” tab on your account. ‚Äč

Know Your Device

Get familiar with your testing device well before test day. Ensure you know how to perform such tasks as zooming in and out, scrolling up and down, logging in to your CLT account, and marking answers on CLT practice tests.
