PTE Exam Dates 2019

PTE Test dates are available for the entire year, so you can select the timing of your exam according to your convenience. The test centers function on a first-come-first-serve basis, so it is important to book your dates as soon as possible. During the time of the high season, tests can fill up in one month in advance.

Therefore registering for PTE date early is a very important task. It is recommended all the candidates start checking the availability of test dates at the earliest. They should also register for PTE test before the registration deadline as there is no assurance that there will be slots left at the last minute. 

Once you are done with your PTE registration, you will receive an email containing exam details including venue address around five days before the test. You have to report on the time mentioned to go through various verification processes. The test dates depend on the test centers availability.
