Interstate and Overseas Testing

Interstate & Overseas Testing

Due to the increase in demand for the ISLPR test, ISLPR Language Services now accepts requests to conduct tests in locations where we do not have a permanent centre established. Guided by our Permanent Presence Temporary Centre policy, we have now established temporary centres in Sydney, Adelaide and Auckland. As per our policy, if there is enough demand in a city, we will send a tester interstate or overseas to conduct ISLPR tests over a number of days. There is an additional cost (variable) charged on top of the test fee to cover the cost of sending a tester interstate/overseas. Before applying for an exam at one of our temporary centres, all candidates must read and familiarise themselves with the PPTC guidelines.

To book an ISLPR® test you can apply and pay for your test online through our online booking system.

There are three different categories of tests:

  1. Academic
  2. Professional
  3. Vocational.

If you are not sure which form to select, please read our blog post: “What is the difference between an Academic, Professional and Vocational Test?”. If you are still unsure, send an email to our Administrative Officer info@islpr.org or phone +61 (0)7 3420 0806.

Please DO NOT use our online system to book a test in Melbourne. All bookings for Melbourne can be made through the ISLPR® Victoria website here.
