TestDrive provides VMware customers, partners, employees, VMUG Advantage members, and vExperts the opportunity to explore VMware products including all Workspace ONE products, Horizon, vSAN, Pivotal Container Service, and SD-WAN. Our environments are fully configured, enterprise grade, and integrated allowing you to use and experience the products as a customer would in their own deployment.

Registering for VMware TestDrive

VMware TestDrive is open to the below user types, each having its own signup process.  Choose your user type below for signup instructions.

VMware Partner

Do not register for TestDrive with your Partner Connect ".vmw" username.

Go to TestDrive Signup, and enter your company email address and country. If you're a member of an active VMware partner organization, you'll be permitted to register for TestDrive.  Follow any registration prompts and be sure to confirm your account via the account verification email.

If you are VTSP, select "yes," and you'll be asked to fill out the registration form. After verification of your VTSP status, we'll send a password reset link. If you select "other" you'll be taken to a page that includes instructions on how to register for this free accreditation. Once you have completed VTSP you can return and sign up later.

Again, to finalize your registration, please be certain to confirm your account through the account verification email.
