When registering, you will need to upload a scanned copy of your ID. It must be valid at the time of booking and on the day of your IELTS test.

Please note that the registration link on this page will give you the option to register in one of our three official British Council IELTS test centres in Lima. It´s important that you are very clear on which centre you register with as they all function independently from one another which means we are not able to manage or change registrations from the three centres as a whole.

Test takers who register with Asociación Cultural Peruano Británica and Centro de Idiomas de la Universidad del Pacífico do not have access to our Road to IELTS Last Minute version; this is an exclusive benefit for candidates who register with the direct British Council test centre.

We are working hand in hand with the government to comply with all security protocols and current regulations. Therefore, we are gradually opening our sessions. You can check the available test dates and centres in the registration link and prepare yourself with our free IELTS online preparation material.
