Welcome to the IELTS Registration with the British Council in Saudi Arabia.
You can select your test date, complete your IELTS application form and reserve a place on this site.
You can pay for your test and upload your ID document online. You can also pay and submit your ID document at a British Council centre or by post. Your payment and ID document must reach us within 5 working days from your online application or at least 2 working days before the test date if you are applying for a test which is within the next 7 days, to confirm your place.
(Please note that your uploaded ID document is subject to approval by British Council centres. You will receive a confirmation email once your ID document has been approved by British Council).
NOTE: If you pay online and do not upload or provide the correct supporting documents within the deadline mentioned , your application will be rejected and your test fee will be partially refunded (an administration charge of SAR 210 will be deducted).
When you have paid for your test, you will have free access to a 30 hour online IELTS preparation course, Road to IELTS.
Your speaking test is likely to be on a different day to the written part of the test. You will be advised of your test venue and speaking test date when you receive your confirmation letter.
Please pay careful attention to the terms & conditions and application instructions. Your application may be delayed or rejected if you do not follow the instructions carefully.
Important - Identity Documents
You must bring the same ID that you enter on the online application form (the original, not a copy) to your IELTS written and speaking test.
If you do not, you will not be allowed to take your IELTS test and your test fee will not be refunded or your test date transferred.
You must contact your test centre no later than 5 working days before your first test date (this may be your speaking or written test) if you know you cannot produce the same ID on test day.
