Step 1: Select a Test Date
Click on the IELTS Online Registration link, select your test date and enter your personal details.
Choose the location of your test. IELTS tests are held in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Eindhoven, Zwolle and Rotterdam.
Make sure you register for the correct test version: Academic or General Training. See here which test version is right for you.
Step 2: Upload your ID Document
ID documents that are accepted:
- EU citizens: National ID card or Passport
- Non-EU citizens: Passport only
Driving licenses are not accepted
The uploaded ID card/passport must clearly show:
- Your ID/Passport photograph
- Your signature
- Your date of birth
- Your ID card/Passport number
- Your ID card/Passport expiry date
Unable to upload your ID?
Send a clearly legible copy of your passport (ID cards will only be accepted if you are an EU national) by email no later than 5 days after registration.
A new passport?
If you receive a new passport after registering for the test with the old passport, you need to inform the IELTS administration of the new passport number immediately by sending an email to the IELTS department. You cannot take the test with the out of date passport number.
