What should you bring to your IELTS test?
The most important thing to bring on the IELTS test day is your identification, either your National Identity Card of an EU country or Passport, depending on which one you used for your IELTS test registration. Please be aware that driving licences, residence permits or other foreign identity cards such as the NIE or TIE are not valid forms of identification. You will need the same identification for your IELTS Speaking test as well.
The test staff will check this before you enter the room and your IELTS Speaking test examiner will check this once again. You don’t have to bring any passport photos on the test day, as the IELTS test centre will take your photo when you register.
It is okay to bring a mobile phone, but you have to switch it off and place it with your other personal belongings (all electronic devices, keys, wallet, food, bags, watch/smartwatch/fit-bit...) in a special area arranged by the test supervisor. You are strongly advised not to bring any valuable items with you to the test centre.
Children or family members of test takers are not allowed to enter the IELTS test venue. If someone needs to wait for you, please ask them to wait outside the venue.
