You need to remove the inital "/" in the match rule. That
would be enough to get it working, but you should also
escape the "." to be fully correct. (Regular expressions -
otherwise "testahtml" would also be rewritten).

Also if "test/test.html" is a relative directory, you should
drop the leading slash there too.

What you need is:
RewriteRule ^test\.html$ test/test.html
