Booking is subject to availability and you can check by choosing the test locations once you have indicated your country on the landing page. Your country <em>may</em> have more than one test venue and a test venue <em>might</em> have only one option available (test on paper or test on computer).&nbsp;</p> <p>Once you have selected the best options for you, you can book OET on paper by doing the following:</p> <ol><li>Go to <a href="https://www.occupationalenglishtest.org/book-oet/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">https://www.occupationalenglishtest.org/book-oet/</a> and choose your country</li><li>Choose your test location and preferred test media and click ‘Book’</li><li>Create your OET account&nbsp;</li><li>Click ‘Apply for the test’ tab</li><li>Review your preferred profession, test date and time</li><li>Check out and pay</li></ol> <p></p> <h2>Book OET on Computer at a Venue</h2> <p>Not all test venues offer OET on a computer. Once you have chosen your country from the dropdown at the <a href="https://www.occupationalenglishtest.org/book-oet/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">OET booking page</a>, your test venue locations will show which test media they offer. Once you’ve chosen your most convenient location and test date, you can now proceed with booking. To book OET on computer at a venue, you need to do the following:</p> <ol><li>Choose your test location and preferred test media and click ‘Book’</li><li>Create your OET account&nbsp;</li><li>Click ‘Book Now’ or ‘Book Your Test’</li><li>Review your preferred profession, test date and time</li><li>Check out and pay</li></ol> <p></p> <p>For all test media, you will have 15 minutes to pay after making your booking before it expires. For OET on paper and on a computer at a venue, the ID you uploaded when booking should be the ID that you bring on the test date.</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><img loading="lazy" width="1000" height="556" src="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/10/shutterstock_265565927-1.jpg" alt="How to book OET" class="wp-image-12511" title="How to book OET" srcset="https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/10/shutterstock_265565927-1.jpg 1000w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/10/shutterstock_265565927-1-300x167.jpg 300w, https://production-prod-trueprofile-blogassets-origin.s3.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/uploads/2021/10/shutterstock_265565927-1-768x427.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></figure> <h2>Your TrueProfile.io Member Benefits</h2> <p>Passing the OET with a ‘B’ grade is essential if you want to get a job abroad, especially in native English-speaking countries.
