Kaiser HS offers the ASVAB test twice a year, usually in November and April.
In order to take the ASVAB at a MEPS for enlistment purposes, an individual will need to speak with a recruiter and schedule a time to take the test. ASVAB testing at a MEPS is self-paced and taken on a computer, and it may be retaken after a one-month waiting period. Those who do not live near a MEPS may take the test at a satellite location called a Military Entrance Test (MET) site.
