TOEFL Dates and Fees

TOEFL at home due to COVID-19.

The TOEFL test can be taken as a computer-based test (CBT), a paper-based test (PBT), and an internet-based test (iBT). The scores from these tests vary and can be converted into the PBT test score which is generally demanded despite the relatively less availability of the test format.

The test dates are generally provided earlier for the PBT tests (in the places that it is offered in). But due to the pandemic, ETS has provided the option of taking the test at home called the TOEFL iBT Home-based test.

The current format through which you can find your test dates has been explained below.

TOEFL iBT Test Dates

The TOEFL iBT test is conducted at ETS authorized test centers around the world. You can search for the locations of these test centers and the test dates available in these test centers which the following steps:

Step 1: Visit the official ETS website and choose the TOEFL option. Or click on this link to directly move on to the test dates page- Find Test Center. The page will contain links to schedule your test appointment, to the TOEFL iBT Home Edition test, and to create an ETS account.

Scroll down the page to see the title in bold called “Find test centers at or near this location”.

Step 2: Enter the name of your city or the city closest to you where you would prefer to take the test. You can also check the box titled “Use my current location” if you are not aware of the test centers near your home.

Step 3: Choose any two consecutive months during which you will be comfortable taking the test. The blue arrow to the right of the page will help you traverse through the months that are available.

Step 4: Click on the “Continue” button which is provided at the bottom right of the page. You can choose to provide the Restricted Reservation Code or not depending on whether you know the same. This option isn’t mandatory.

Step 5: Choose dates that suit your convenience from the calendars provided. This is based on the availability of test dates and can be of any test center around the location you have chosen.
I have chosen New Jersey as an example.

Step 6: OR choose the test center of your choice and find the available dates in that specific test center. In this case, the number of dates available will be considerably less but you can choose from it all the same.

Step 7: Once you have chosen a date, you can click on the “Show test times and register”. This will lead to the registration process from where you can register for the chosen test date and center.

The steps mentioned above do not pertain to the TOEFL iBT Home Edition Test. It will only provide information regarding test dates in the test centers.
