Typing Test

    Home » Typing Test
The free typing test will measure your WPM speed and allow you to share your daily typing scores with friends on Facebook or Google+.

Type the exercise paragraph exactly as shown below and click the TEST ME! button when finished. Your speed and accuracy will be measured automatically by the typing test, and a performance evaluation will be displayed along with your typing speed.

You may also get an optional typing certificate with online verification and a professionally printed certification document suitable for framing after completing the typing tests. Remember, keyboarding accuracy is just as important as speed, so don't rush through the typing exercise. You may also create a free typing lesson account that will allow you to store your typing test results and provide performance graphs, so you can monitor your own typing skill improvement over time.
When taking these typing tests, you do NOT need to press the ENTER key between lines, the text that you type will automatically wrap to the next line when it reaches the end. Click in the box below to start the timer and begin the test.

I adored airplane food as a child. Blissfully situated between my parents, I awaited the presentation of my meal with greater anticipation than the arrival at our destination. I can recall early morning flights: peeling back the foil from my orange juice cup, savoring the lukewarm, cabin-temperature juice, and falling asleep on my mother's shoulder.

I just happened to get the typing test page on my screen (no idea how I got there, I had been browsing through AOl shopping pages), when I saw that I could do a test, I first looked for how much this was going to cost me - 'Wot no cost? I thought'. I haven't tested for years and you can imagine my surprise when I scored 45 wpm with 2 errors! I was estatic!.

" I enjoy taking your typing tests - great fun. Thanks so much for your interesting site. I try and take the test most days to improve my speed. It was - after a few goes 47 wpm with no mistakes! " - Pam
"Your site is A-1. I had made use of it from time to time in the past, and it was always my favorite of the ones I've tried. Recently however, it has become invaluable to me, as I broke my wrist last fall plus had nerve damage in two of my fingers from the operation, so I have been struggling to inch back up to my previous 80 wpm. After years and years of typing, I don't need the exercises -- I just like to race myself over and over with the typing test. It's a great way to practice, and I love the instantaneous results, but what really stands out for me is your quirkily entertaining test copy. I'd like to meet the person who's in charge of that. I recommend your site to everyone (I know lots of people who still use the old hunt & peck) because now that I've just lived it both ways I feel even more compelled to convince them of the error of their ways! Thanks very much," - Rebecca
" Thank you so much, Learn2type.com!!I have been trying to find a better job over the last few months and I had not been having much luck. Eventually, I saw an ad in the paper for a typing job, but you had to be able to type at least 40 WPM. I knew it had been a long time since I had tested my speed and I wasn't sure that I could do it. So, I looked on-line for a free typing test and...KA-BLAM!! I found Learn2type.com! I tried your free test and I was only doing about 32 WPM. With lots of practice, I managed to get myself up to 49 WPM in just a few days!!! I went today for the typing test, knowing that I would be totally nervous and probably mess it all up. But, guess what? I passed the test and I got the job!!!Thanks again!! " - Dennis, PA
