The 2018 fee for both test components (literacy test and numeracy test) is $185.00 (GST inclusive). In 2019, the fee for both test components will be $196.00 (GST inclusive).
The 2018 fee for a single test component (literacy test or numeracy test) is $92.50 (GST inclusive). In 2019, the test fee for a single test component will be $98.00 (GST inclusive).
Please note: the test fee is payable for each test component each time you register and attempt the test. For example, if you register to sit both test components during a test window and do not meet the standard in one component, you will be required to register and pay the single test component in a subsequent test window.
Payment can be made by credit card (MasterCard or Visa Credit/Debit).
American Express (AMEX) card, Diners Club card, personal cheques and cash will not be accepted.
When you pay by credit card, you will receive a payment confirmation/tax invoice by email once the payment transaction is completed. The online payment option operates through ACER's e-commerce facility via the ACER website. Credit card details are not recorded or stored by ACER but are encrypted at point of capture and transmitted directly to the bank, without entering ACER information systems. Thus you can be assured this is a safe payment option.
Please note that your credit card statement may list ACER as the recipient, and a specific reference to the test may not be mentioned. If you (as the person registered to sit the test in 2018) or any other person wrongfully dispute the amount charged to the credit card provided to complete the registration, your registration may be cancelled, your results may be withheld and/or you may be blocked from taking further ACER administered tests.
