Kaplan SQE has partnered with Pearson VUE to provide an international network of test centres, allowing for the greatest possible flexibility when booking SQE1 or SQE2 written assessments. A link will be activated on this page when booking windows are open to allow you to visit Pearson VUE’s website. It will give you the ability to search where your nearest active SQE test centre is prior to making a booking for an assessment. You can not book your assessment on Pearson VUE’s website, it is just for information only. You must still book your assessment via your SQE account.
The test centre information link may provide directions, parking, wheelchair support or other physical access considerations. Distance (mi/km) is a straight line calculated from the centre point of your search criteria and does not reflect driving distance.
Pearson VUE professional centres in England and Wales comply with the disability access requirements of the Equality Act 2010. The test centres can accommodate a range of alternative arrangements for candidates with special requirements or the need for reasonable adjustments.
Third parties, such as employers and training providers, can use this link to see which test centres are available to book their learners into if they are using the bulk bookings process.
This facility will not be available when bookings close because it only provides information of active Pearson test centres where SQE1 or SQE2 written assessments can be taken.
Over time we will look to provide further and more detailed information about possible locations where you can sit SQE1 or SQE2 written assessments, which will be available to access outside of the booking windows.
