The layout of our PLAB 2 test centre, which is in a multi-occupancy building, makes it very difficult for us to comply with the latest UK government guidance on social distancing and safe workplaces. Unfortunately, this means we’ve had to cancel all existing bookings for PLAB 2 in 2020.

We’re doing everything we can to get PLAB 2 up and running, by looking again at the format and length of the test, how we can create more space in the centre, and whether other venues could offer the safe environment we need.

We hope to restart PLAB 2 tests in autumn. We’ll let candidates know as soon as we reopen bookings.

We’ve not taken this decision lightly, and appreciate the significant inconvenience this will cause, but your health and safety are our priority.
