DELE EXAM DATES 2017 and how to register

These are the when, where and how of registering for the DELE exam.

There are exams scheduled five times per year – see the infographic with dates above, with the final registration dates.

PLEASE NOTE that not all of the exam centers offer all of the exams for all of the levels on each of these dates.  Some centers  offer only certain levels, and some skip certain dates completely. It is therefore essential to check with your preferred center whether they actually offer your level on your preferred date.

You can see the list of centers (more than one thousand, in more than 100 countries spread all across the globe, but with the great majority in Europe) by clicking on this link:

If you choose an exam center in Spain, you can regisiter on-line.  For the rest of the world, you have to present to the exam center of your choice your original passport plus a photocopy of it, as well as documentary proof of payment of the registration fee (varies per country; check with your exam center).
