Free Typing Test with Typequick

Find out your typing speed with the Typequick fun and free typing test! It will only take two minutes of your time to complete the free typing test. When you are finished, our Skill Evaluator algorithm will give you instant feedback, providing you with your typing speed and accuracy results. You can then compare your results of your free typing test with the test typing speed and accuracy results you can expect to achieve after you have taken a Typequick Professional or Typequick for Students 10 day course.

How to take the Typequick free typing test

When you begin, the exam text will appear on the screen along with a blank window for inputting your text. These are the simple rules of the free typing test:

  1. You can press the Return/Enter key or the Space bar at the end of each line.
  2. You can do a single space after a period (full stop).
  3. Don't back space from one line to another.
  4. You can make corrections within a line.

That's all there is to it! The test will automatically stop after 2 minutes and an assessment of your typing speed and accuracy will appear. You can compare your typing speed results with those of expert touch-typists and find out just how much faster and more accurately it is possible to type after you have learned how to touch-type using Typequick Professional or Typequick for Students.

In order to use the free typing test, you will need to enter your name and email address. Don't worry: we will not share these details with a third party.

Enjoy your free typing test! If you have trouble viewing it, change your screen resolution to 800X600. Remember: the Typequick free typing test is meant for your enjoyment and information only and is not a certification of your typing speed and accuracy skill level.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Free Typing Test

  • I'm not sure what line to type next?

    The test program always keeps the top line in the test text window as the current one which you should be typing.

    When you complete a line (successfully), the test program scrolls the test text window up one line, so the line you just typed disappears from the test text window.

    You should only need to look at the top line in the test text window, the program will keep moving the test text up so the top line contains the line you should be typing.

  • Do I double space after a punctuation mark?

    No, the test program is set to expect single spacing

  • Do I press the spacebar or the enter key at the end of a line?

    Either one will do.

  • The test text stopped scrolling?

    When you finish a line, the test program tries to see if what you typed corresponds to the top line in the test text window. If the test program can't find a good enough match between what you typed and the top line, the test text window won't be scrolled up one line.

    If this happens, you should either backspace over what you have typed and try to get back in synch with the test program, or just type the top line visible in the test text window from the start of the line.
