Before you proceed to the next step, download and read the Test Taker Handbook.
Step 2 – Choose Your Preferred Schedule
Once you’ve signed in, you can now schedule your PTE test:

Pearson permits you to change the chosen date and location at this stage.
Step 3 – Pay the Fees
To register, you need to pay the allotted fees based on your location and currency. If you have a voucher, you need to use it at this stage.
You can only pay with these credit cards:
- American Express
Once your payment is processed, you’ll receive a confirmation email with further instructions.
Note that late booking charges apply when you register 48 hours before the exam. For cancellation and rescheduling fees, check the Pearson website.
To prevent any errors during registration, remember these points:
- Use the Roman alphabet during test registration.
- Your name and birth date should match the proof of ID.
- It’s mandatory to carry ID proof to the exam center.
You must be 18 years and a citizen in the location where you are applying. Those aged below 18 must show their parental consent during test registration and on the exam date.
Congratulations! You can now use your password and PTE academic login ID to log into the account and book your test. Good luck!
