For testing at a test center, enter your preferred testing location. Choose the two 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 choose the two month period when you would like to take the test, then Continue. To select your test appointment, confirm your time zone or select a new one. Select an available test date from the calendar, and then select an available time for your test and click Register for this Test.

For the Paper Edition, you will need to make two appointments. First is your test center appointment where you will take the reading, listening, and writing sections on paper. Enter a location, choose a two month period, and then click Continue. Select a date and location, and then select Show Test Times and Register and click Register.

Next, select a date and time for the speaking section, which you take at home. This appointment will be made within three days of the test center appointment.

It also provides a link to request accommodations if you have a disability.

Review the information in the acknowledgment section, check the box, and click Next. Fill out your ID information. Make sure to use an ID that is valid for the location where you are testing.
