Well I have had this car for almost a year, im the 2nd owner. The car just died on me lastnite and wont start, theres no spark and the battery is fine, is there a way i can test the ignition module without taking it to a shop?

First things first, either take the distributor cap off and see if the rotor turns when the car is cranked. If not you likely broke the timing belt. Alternatively you can just remove the 2 clips that hold the upper timing belt cover in place and inspect it.
