This is how to register for a TOEFL iBT® test on the TOEFL website.

You can also register using the TOEFL® official app, which is available free on the App Store and Google Play®.

Once you have your ETS account, sign in with your username and password, and click “Register.”

Select testing at a test center, or the Home Edition. The Home Edition option will appear here if it is available in the country listed in your account.

For testing at a test center, enter your preferred testing location, choose the 2-month period when you would like to take the test – and then click “Continue”

You may select any date from the calendar that shows available seats. Choose a location, and then select “Show Test Times and Register” for that location. When you find a time that suits you, click “Register.”

For the Home Edition, first verify your email address, then continue.

To select your test appointment, confirm your time zone, or select a new one.

Choose the two-month period when you would like to take the test, and select an available test date from the calendar.

Then select an available time for your test, and click “Register for this test.”

The next page has information you should know before you complete your registration. It also provides a link to request accommodations if you have a disability. Review the information in the Acknowledgement section, check the box, and click “Next.”

On the Free Score Recipients page, you can choose up to 4 institutions to receive your test scores as part of the test fee. Use the search box, and when you find the institution you’re looking for, choose “Add to My Score Recipients.” Continue adding score recipients up to the maximum number. Then, choose how you would like to receive your own score report, and click “Next.”

If you are working with an agent or consultant who has provided you with a code, enter it in the Agent ID field.

Review your registration date, time and location and your score recipients.
