Online Exam Registration via Exam Center for ISTQB, ASTQB, and IQBBA Exams

Register to Take the Exam via an Online Exam Center Using a Promo Code

If you have a promo code from your training provider or employer, follow the instructions below to register for the ISTQB, ASTQB, GTB/ASTQB or IQBBA exam at a test center.

  • Create an account on the ASTQB Exam Registration site (if you already have an account, log in using your existing credentials).
  • Once you have logged in to your account, you can choose your online exam from the catalog. You will also choose the center (location) you want to test at, then choose the date and time you want to start. (If you just want to see where / when you can take the exam, simply select the exam and the center but don’t proceed to the checkout until you are ready. The locations closest to you will come up according to the zip code you entered in your profile.)
  • Agile and Advanced exams require qualification, as described below.
  • When you get to the payment screen at the end, you will enter your promo code instead of a credit card. Note that each promo code has an expiration date, and that is the date when the exam must be completed, not scheduled. Do not fill in any credit card information – just scroll to the bottom and hit “Submit”.

More Details and Instructions

Keep track of your account information and password, and the expiration date of your promo code. Note that the promo code is only good for the type of exam it was created for.

If you wish to take a Foundation Level exam, click the “Register for an Examination” link. Click to select your exam, then click “Buy Now.” (You will not be charged until at the end of the registration process.) During the registration process, you will be given an opportunity to select your testing center. After choosing a testing center, navigate to the desired date and select your seating time.

If you wish to take an Advanced Level exam after creating your account, you must first submit proof of CTFL certification and a resume and/or employer verification of 3 years experience to in order to generate access to register. In the cover email, the examinee must state that the information contained in the resume or employer verification is accurate and complete to the best of his/her ability. Once we receive your documentation, you will receive an email that your qualification has been accepted and you can now log back in, follow the above instructions and go to “Register for an Examination”. If you have already qualified for Advanced Level exams other than at an exam center, email with a request to access the online Advanced Level exam system.

To reschedule or cancel your exam, log in to your account at the ASTQB Exam Registration site, and click on “Registrations” on the left side, then “Details” in the middle showing your schedule.
