How to Apply
Applications for the IELTS test can only be made using the Online Registration System.
Before applying please read the following essential information.
Acceptable forms of ID Documents:
- Passport – This must show your name in English, date of birth, ID number, expiry date and contain your photograph and signature.
- National ID Card (for EU citizens only).
- BRP Card
- ARC Card
- Driving Licence is not an acceptable form of ID
All names listed on your passport must be listed in your application. If any first, middle or surnames are missing you will not be allowed to sit the test and will have to pay to transfer to a future date (refund is not an option).
Payment is due within IELTS’ deadline. Payments can be made, once registered and in receipt of a Registration Reference Number, via the secure online payment system.
On test day you must bring the original ID document used to complete your application - copies are not accepted. Failure to produce the correct ID will result in you not being permitted to take the test, with no refund.
For questions concerning acceptable forms of ID, or if the ID document you applied with is no longer in your possession, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
