How do I register for IELTS?

IELTS Registration is very quick and easy:

Step One

You can sit an IELTS test in more than 1,200 locations across the world. Find out how and where you can book your IELTS test.

Step Two

Then register for your IELTS test. You may book and pay your IELTS test via online in British Council/ IDP or download an application form to print, complete and submit to your local test centre.


The above two links also provide you the information of IDP IELTS Test Dates and British Council IELTS Dates. Don’t forget to provide a copy of your valid identity document. You will also need to present the same identity document on the day of the test.

Step Three

Once your application has been processed, the centre will send you a written confirmation of the date and time of your test. The Speaking and Writing tests typically take place on the same day. If this is not possible, the tests will take place within seven days of each other.For further information, contact your local IELTS test centre or download our Information for Candidates booklet (PDF 1,021 KB).
