Charles Darwin University Test Centre has been delivering IELTS to the wider Northern Territory community since 1988. The off-site Alice Spring test venue caters for the remote communities of the Northern Territory, and runs 6-7 tests per year on alternate months.
The off-site test venue is located at the Charles Darwin University Alice Springs campus at Sadadeen, about 2.5 km from the city centre. For test takers flying to Alice Springs from interstate or remote areas, the airport is 17 km from the city centre.
The main test takes place on Saturday, and the Speaking test takes place on either the Thursday or Friday. Test takers will have their photograph taken and finger scanned prior to the Speaking test.
