In brief: No test

The diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is by history.
There is no test that shows whether or not you have it. If there are a sufficient number of symptoms of attention deficit or of hyperactivity-impulsivity which cause problems, have been present since early childhood (before age 7), and there is no other clear cause, then you have attention deficit.
