In brief: If you have symptoms
While there is no specific or definitive test for adhd per sa, several rating scales have been employed combined with a complete history to make the diagnosis.
With regard to the question, you get tested if you think you have the symptoms enough to interfere with your level of functioning. We think it's inherited, so of you have family and symptoms, get evaluated.
