Hi all!
I came across the following sentence online. I was wondering, does it mean "do a test"? Is it okay that I say " She was going to take a test/do a test to check..."?

Max was remember 3 weeks earlier when Page told him she was late and she was going to get a test done to check for pregnancy.

    "Get a test done" means someone else will do the test. It is not okay to say that she will "do a test" or "take a test".
