Joining the military is a serious commitment and to make sure you are committed, you are required to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB exam).

The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success in the military. It is administered annually to more than one million military applicants, high school, and post-secondary students. ASVAB testing for applicants is conducted at Military Entrance Processing Stations, known as MEPS. The MEPS are a Department of Defense joint-service organization staffed with military and civilian professionals.

There are 65 MEPS located across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. View MEPS locations here.  If you do not live near a MEPS, the ASVAB can be administered at a satellite location called a Military Entrance Test (MET) site. MET sites are often located in Federal government office buildings, National Guard armories, or Reserve centers.
