Smile early arrival to test center

Hi,

I would like to know that will it be alright if I arrive early to test center as I want to avoid traffic stress. I found out that Chicago traffic is too heavy.
Can I go inside test center if I arrive 2 hours earlier than scheduled time.

Thanks

2 hours is a little bit too much, and the center may be closed. For that reason, I think you should call the center and ask about that. May be it's ok.

I gave in Chicago only..you said your exam is afternoon...when i gave exam i came in train and its kool..anyhow if u want you can go 2 hours before(bcz of traffic) then you can go and you can sit in-front of lift there just after entrance at ground floor entrance ..there you can notice some chairs,sit down and you can revise important things from FA...you can even relax and also you have subway near center so you can eat something...you can enter lift to go up before 30min...you can ask at reception at ground floor(beside lift)where you can all the best..hope it helps you
