When you register for a CELPIP Test, you will receive a test confirmation email. Please read this email to confirm the date, time, and location of your test.
On test day, you must bring the original, valid identification that you used to register for the test, and you must present this identification at check-in.
The CELPIP Test is completely computer-delivered. During the test, you will be in a room with other test takers, and you may be able to hear them speaking or typing. The sound of other test takers submitting their responses is a standard test room condition.

If you do not provide your passport booklet or the identification document that you registered with at the test sitting, you will be refused entry to the test and no refunds or transfers will be given.

Test Day Rules
Test takers are encouraged to use the washroom before entering the test room. CELPIP Tests are timed and will not pause for any reason. Test takers who wish to use the washroom during the test should raise their hand so that test centre personnel can escort them.
Children are not allowed in the test room, and test takers may not take breaks to feed or otherwise care for a child. Neither Paragon Testing Enterprises nor the test centre will accept responsibility for unsupervised children. Test takers will be refused entry if they try to leave children outside the test room unsupervised.
Please do not use perfumes, aftershaves, colognes, and other scented products on test day. These products may make other people in the room sick.
The following behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in your removal from the test room or test centre:
Cheating on the CELPIP Test may cancel your test results. Paragon considers cheating to include any action (i.e., memorizing test answers based on questions from previous CELPIP Tests, or submitting a false score report to a government agency or other organization) that will help you gain an unfair advantage on the CELPIP Test. These actions may result in severe consequences.
Paragon reserves the right to report a suspected cheater to a government agency (i.e., Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) or other organization that the test taker is applying to for investigation and enforcement.
You will be asked during check-in to store all personal belongings in a personal property bag or locker. The only item you may bring into the test room is your identification document.
The following items are not allowed in the test room. If you are found to have any of these items with you during the test, you may be removed from the test room, and your scores may be cancelled by Paragon Testing Enterprises:
The proper authorities will be notified if test takers are found in possession of dangerous or illegal materials.
