I can only find this: 

Welcome, you are one step closer to finding a test location and scheduling your DSST exam at a Prometric test center.  Simply select the appropriate icon above to get started.  Please review the below for more information.

At this time civilian and non-eligible military test takers cannot take an exam at a Prometric test center.

Can you link me to the page that says we can take the DSST online? The second page is for becoming a proctor. Another page of theirs says you must take the test at a testing center. I'd love to be able to knock out some DSSTs. Online access would be great.

"Take your exam anytime, anywhere with Prometric’s secure remote-assessment platform, ProProctor.

"Welcome to the DSST Internet Based Testing Proctor Site!

You have been directed to this site for one of two reasons. First, you have expressed an interest in administering DSSTs via the Internet-based delivery format. In which case, we need you to become an approved “Test Proctor” within the Prometric Online Delivery System (you are actually interacting with that system right now!). "

Oh maybe I'm misunderstanding something here....

Prometric is the DSST testing service provider and now they say they support remote ProProctor exams..
and DSST website says they have online internet-delivery exam format.

I will email them to figure out what's going on.

I'm seeing the same that you are... and it is really confusing. Maybe they are training proctors to prepare for future online DSST tests? Or maybe we're both missing something haha. It does seem like they're saying it's online but I can't find a signup for it or any other information.

It sounds like they are preparing to move to online exams and that site is for people who are being brought in to be live proctors (ala ProctorU / Examity).

I sent them an email to verify this.

It would be nice if DSST tests were available to anyone online. Needing to have access to a military base is a bit of a bummer otherwise. I really really hope that they aren't going with ProctorU, though.
