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.

PLAB 2 test dates

We run PLAB 2 test dates throughout the year. You can view available dates in our PLAB booking service via 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 plab@gmc-uk.org and we will try and offer you a test place as soon as we can.

The number of places in our PLAB exams is not linked to the number of jobs available.
