You can register for a CELPIP test in Canada as well as abroad. There are over 70 locations in total, and there are test dates available every month.

In order to find out the location and the available dates for the CELPIP, you should use this link and check the possible locations for the test in the first instance.

Depending on how you want to search, you can find the locations as a list or select “Map View”.

How to Search for CELPIP Dates

1. Searching by List

The first thing you will see on the website is a list of all the locations and the following information:

  • Test type (General or LS)
  • CELPIP Date and time when the test can be taken at that location
  • The name of the location
  • The price of the test
  • Whether it is available or not – this appears under the tag “Seats” and you’ll either see it as “Sold Out” in red or “Available” in green.

If a test location is available you can click on the “Register Now” button and follow the instructions on the page which opens up afterward (make sure you haven’t disabled pop-ups as this is a new tab that will open on your internet browser).

To make it easier to find your desired test center, use the “Filter” button just above the first test location in the list. Once you have clicked on this, you can select a country, region, city, and then your test type. You can now select when you want to take the test (this month only, in the next three months, or whenever i.e. “All Test Dates”).

You have the option of going for a test date on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and you can even select a morning or afternoon test (AM/PM).

Once you have applied all your filters, you will get a personalized list of available CELPIP test dates which you can then choose from much easier.

Remember that you can select more than one option, for example, you can tick all days of the Friday / Saturday / Sunday list.


Please note: Currently, the available countries for CELPIP are Canada, the United States, India, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates.


2. Searching by Map View

This is useful if you want to focus on available dates at one location only as it allows you to zoom in on a location with a few clicks.

You will first see the global view and you will need to click on one of the red location icons to zoom in on your country or city of choice. This will bring up a dialogue box where you can click on “More Info”.

Then, you will get all the information on tests being offered at that location only: first, the option to just register for the next available test (General or LS), or the option to view all CELPIP available test dates at that location. Finally, on this page, you can scroll down and see a list of all test dates at this location too.
