    CTC does say that that's possible, yes. It's a good option for people who've already taken SAT. Let me point out that CBEST on paper is still available, though fewer times per year than it used to be; it's two bucks cheaper than SAT.

    Are you going to be taking CSET-MS or one of the single-subject CSETs? If the former, you have one other option.

    What's your deadline for needing official scores?

    They do, but usually only in the case of soldiers entering college. Also, testers over 21 require individual testing rooms if possible. At a minimum, they must be kept separate from 7th graders taking the SAT through the Duke TIP Program. The SAT is a very different format than it was 10 years ago. It is much more like the ACT now. I think your best bet would be to do the paper CBEST.
