Follow the below steps to create a trial environment of Dynamics 365:

Step 1: Go to https://trials.dynamics.com and select Finance and Operations tile.
Step 2: You need a work email to register. Work email means, an email in your own domain, it cannot be Gmail or Outlook.com.
Fill out your email and mobile number. Once done, hit Get Started.
Step 3: Verify your identity through phone verification. You will receive a SMS on your mobile to continue.
Step 4: Confirm that you are using a work email.
Step 5: Fill out the registration form. Remember the password as this will be used along with your email to login.
Step 6: Invite your colleagues to experience the product.
Step 7: At this point, deployment will start and it will easily take 2-3 hours depending on the load on back-end servers at that point.
Note: Your session will time out in few minutes and it will show a message like, “404 Environment not found or invalid”. Just wait few hours for LCS Team email confirmation that your environment is ready.
Step 8: Lifecycle Services (LCS) confirmation email. This email will contain the environment as well as the deployment status link.
After waiting for a few hours, you will finally be able to login to the Dynamics 365 Finance application.
