Introducing

More choice of location, more choice of test dates ; Secure English Language Test (UKVI) is a qualification that enables you to demonstrate your knowledge of English language for a range of purposes, including work, study or settlement.

You can choose the test level you require, from beginner to mastery, for either two skills, speaking and listening, or four skills, speaking, listening, reading and writing.

That way you know you are preparing for, and taking, precisely the level of test you need for your chosen visa no more, no less , and all in a single session.

All Secure English Language Test (UKVI) tests use computer based delivery for all skills. Reading and listening are automatically marked during the test session itself; speaking and writing are recorded digitally during the test session and marked by trained assessors (who have no visibility of your personal details) after t he test is finished. This means you can move through each of the skills sections in turn in a single test session and receive your results in as few as 3 days.

This Secure English Language Test (UKVI)meets the standards setout by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) scale.

That’s Right folks

Quicker appointment times than the traditional English testing facilities. It takes 2 weeks to get your result (electronically) after attending your test – no need to wait for printed documents and being held hostage to courier deliveries.

Even better, these tests are UKVI accredited. Your test results will include a URN (Unique Reference Number) – that is UKVI accredited. This electronic information needs to be included in your visa application.

If you have any questions or concerns, you can email info@selt.co.za

Attached below is an approximate breakdown of test availability in Cape Town and Johannesburg.
