Ready to book your PLAB test?
If you’ve read our guides and meet the requirements, you're ready to book your test. To book PLAB 1, you'll need to set up a GMC Online account. To book PLAB 2, log in to GMC Online.
We’re continually reviewing our arrangements for PLAB 1 based on advice from governments in the countries where exams are held. We’re also working with the British Council and suppliers that host PLAB 1, to understand their availability and suitability over the coming months.
We’ve cancelled all PLAB 2 tests until at least 29 June 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. We’re considering how we can run tests in the future, in light of the latest guidance from the UK government on social distancing and safe workplaces.
The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board test, or the PLAB test, helps us to make sure doctors who qualified abroad have the right knowledge and skills to practise medicine in the UK. There are two parts to the PLAB test.
