Sydney Testing

Request for a tester to be sent to Sydney from ILS (Brisbane)

Due to the increase in demand for the ISLPR test, ISLPR Language Services 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.

Proposed travel dates are published on our website here.

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.

Teacher/Prof. Registration Test

We have developed an approach to testing that focuses on the English language used by teachers in their roles as practitioners and professionals in Australian society. The focus is especially on your practical ability in using English.

Academic Test

The academic test is for candidates wishing to take a test to gain entry into an academic program (e.g. university or other educational institutions).

Vocational Test

The vocational test is designed for candidates wishing to take a test for vocational purposes other than teaching. The focus is especially on your practical ability in using English.

We are monitoring health advice from health authorities and when we feel it is safe to travel again we will do so. We open some bookings every month in Sydney so candidates can purchase a credit note for a test. Any candidate that purchases a credit note for a test will be placed on our waitlist and will have their appointment prioritised when it is possible for us to travel interstate again.

Please note, we are able to add your name to a wait-list if you would like to purchase a credit note. We are able to issue credit notes that can be used towards booking your test once we have confirmed new test dates in your region. If you would like to purchase a credit note for a test, please fill in the correct form and you will be issued with a credit note once payment has been completed. If the test is showing as “out of stock” it means we have exceeded the limit on credit notes that we can issue for the month.
