If you come for an Express test after 13:00, the test result and the certificate will be ready by 9:00 the next morning on weekdays and at 12:00 on weekends. Occasionally a test result must be analysed twice  (f.ex. unclear test result), which can cause a delay of couple of hours. 

You can print your certificate yourself or collect it from our testing points during opening hours. The Express service costs an extra fee of 40 €.  Service is available every day of the year.
