If you mean without PAYING, yes; sign up for a totally free account, and download what you want. This is all very clear on Red Hat's website.

That said, there are a few things wrong with this question:
  • You're asking about RHEL6 which is outdated; the latest is 7, and there is NO reason to download an old version for a new installation
  • Unless you PAY FOR RHEL, you WILL NOT get bugfixes/patches/security updates, or access to the online repositories. All you're going to wind up with is an unstable, unpatched system, that is going to be MUCH more difficult to maintain. Loading ANY software will require multiple steps/compilation from source, and when you're doing, your system will be MORE unstable, since you've shoved software onto your box that's not certified to work with the other components.
  • If you're not planning on paying for RHEL, don't use it, period. CentOS is 99.x% IDENTICAL, but totally free...and IT is also up to version 7.x
  • If you're loading this on a 'consumer' system, think twice. RHEL and other 'server grade' OS'es are built for SERVERS. Servers don't have wifi, sound, bluetooth, or even a MONITOR on them most of the time. Support for graphics and other such consumer-grade hardware is spotty at best.
If your goal is to learn Linux, choose ANY other consumer-grade distro. ALL of them run almost identical commands, with some minor differences. Fedora would be a good choice for consumer support, while still having most of the Red Hat systems admin commands.

I need to install RHEL 6 to virtual servers because we have RHEL6 in production, because we need to test application.
I'm registered on REDHAT website but i cannot find the ISO without having a subscription.

Wrong; you can download RHEL without paying, if you have an account on their website. If you have RHEL6 in production, and you're already paying for RHEL, then please contact Red Hat support, and tell them what's wrong. They can send you a link.

And if you already HAVE RHEL6 in production, how did it get there, without already HAVING the RHEL6 ISO's?
