You may change your test date at any time before the test. However, your transfer request may be treated as a cancellation dependent on how near to the test day it is made.

You can only transfer the same booking once.

On rare occasions, there may be instances where you are unable to attend your test or are disadvantaged on the test day owing to illness, injury, or other exceptional event outside your control. In these cases, you may make an application to your test centre for special consideration due to exceptional circumstances. This will allow you to carry over your test fee to a later test date or, in some cases, apply for a refund.

You can apply for special consideration before the test, and up to two calendar days after the test date. However, applications for special consideration will not be accepted after your results have been released.
