Where can you take PLAB 2?
PLAB 2 is held at our two assessment centre sites in Manchester, UK:
GMC Clinical Assessment Centre
3 Hardman Square
Your booking confirmation will confirm which test centre you should attend, including the address.
As the addresses look very similar, please make sure you check this information carefully before arrival.
Addresses for all GMC offices can be found on our Contact us page.
PLAB 2 test dates
We run PLAB 2 test dates throughout the year. You can view available dates and book under the 'My Tests' section of GMC Online. You can only do this once you have your PLAB 1 results.
Demand for PLAB 2 places is high, and you may experience a wait for a test date.
If you have a UK job offer in the NHS that requires GMC registration or hold UK refugee status, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try and offer you a test place as soon as we can.
The number of places in our part 2 exam is not linked to the number of jobs available.
