Test dates, fees and locations

IELTS test fee

The IELTS test fee is 575 Turkish lira. In contrast to other international test providers, British Council Turkey determines test fees in Turkish lira to prevent candidates from being adversely affected from foreign exchange rate increases.

Important Note: In rare cases, when the payment is made with a credit/debit card, the Turkish lira amount may be slightly higher than the test fee. The British Council does not collect the difference. The difference arises from the foreign exchange rate variation between the foreign supplier that performs the transactions and the bank. If you accept the test fee difference that may arise in this way, you can complete your IELTS registration by paying with credit card.

Test locations

The British Council conducts IELTS tests in Adana, Ankara, Antalya, Istanbul, and Izmir in Turkey. All registrations are done at the British Council Istanbul office.

Test location, time, and speaking test details are announced at 18:00 four (4) days before the test date. Click on our page and enter your ID number to find out about your writing and speaking test location and time.
