Pearson VUE test centres

Pearson VUE has a network of secured test centres in EBU member countries.
During the online registration the candidate registers the preferred country and city for taking the exam. The aim is to have candidates take the exam in, or as close as possible to the preferred city.
After receiving final information from the EBU the candidate books the exam in one of the available test centres through the Pearson VUE website.

Please note:
– A candidate who can only sit the exam in a non-EBU member country contacts the EBU before starting the online registration.
– Test centres in Austria, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland and Turkey are reserved for national exam candidates.

Register with names as stated in your passport/ID

The candidate must be registered with names as stated in passport/ID. Access to the Pearson VUE test centre can only be guaranteed when the candidate’s registration matches the passport/ID presented.
