Step 4: Book Your Test

What you will need:

A high-quality, scanned colour copy of either your current valid passport or both sides of your Canadian Permanent Resident (PR) Card.

IELTS is very strict about the ID scan, as it is the primary form of ID that is used for the test. Please scan your ID at a high resolution so that we can clearly see the details of your face and the information listed below. If your ID scan is not approved, you will not be allowed to sit the test and you will not receive a refund.

The coloured digital copy of your ID document must include the following information:

    • ID Document Number
    • ID Expiry Date
    • Picture
    • Full name
    • Date of birth
    • Signature

If you have taken the test before, use your login credentials from your existing IELTS Essentials account. You do not need to upload your ID document again. If this is your first IELTS test, continue as a New User.
