Pearson Test of English (PTE) is a computer-based English language proficiency test for studying abroad and immigration purposes.

Before booking, you need to make sure of the following eligibility criteria:

  • You must be aware of the degree of qualification. Although there is no set minimum requirement, PTE Academic is primarily targeted towards students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate-level courses.

There are 400+ test centres for Pearson PTE worldwide. Therefore, there is probably a test facility near you.

You can call Pearson at 1800 729 282 or create a PTE account online to make a PTE academic test booking. Besides, you have up to 24 hours in advance to schedule the exam.

How do I know about my PTE test exam dates?

You can check the available PTE exam dates on the official PTE website, depending on which PTE centre you choose.

You can choose any test date that suits your schedule. However, if you want to rebook the exam, please ensure that the previous exam is five days before the upcoming exam

What documentation do I need to book my test?

In most countries worldwide, the ID needed for booking PTE online should be your valid passport.

During Pearson PTE exam booking, you need to include the information from your passport. On exam day, you must present the original passport at the testing location.

Regarding identity verification, you must pay attention to the following requirements:

  • The issue date of the ID cannot be more than 10 years old. 
  • Your test registration name must accurately match the name on your ID.
  • Your ID photo must match your appearance.
  • You must bring the original ID on the exam day; a photocopy of your ID or even a certified one is unacceptable.

To avoid unexpected situations before the test day,  you should also be aware of the following:

  • If you do not hold your passport since your visa application is still pending, you must ask for it back before the exam day.
  • If your child’s passport (under 18) is still valid, but the photo doesn’t match your appearance now, you might not be allowed to take the test and lose your test fee.
  • If you do not have a current passport or can not present another document in the exceptions and variations list, you will not be able to take the test and lose your test fee.

Is the Pearson PTE test available for offline booking?

Unfortunately, no.

You can only book PTE online on the official PearsonPTE website and follow the steps we have given above.


Simple right? With a passport and some clicks on your computer, you can quickly book your PTE test on your desired date.
