How to take the  ELPT 3 online   test

just a few little steps to go

1.
STEP 1

In a first step you check your hardware equipment (computer, microphone, camera), making sure that the online language test runs on your computer. Then you enter your personal data, such as name, license number and flight experience.

2.
STEP 2

You pay for the test, either using PayPal (available for all customers) or a given login-code (provided by your flight school, airline or association). After you pay, you are just one click away from starting the test. The system will choose the test tasks according to your type of pilot license and flight experience.

3.
STEP 3

You take the language test online. The system guides you automatically through all 15 tasks of the test. In cases of difficulties with comprehension you can make use of a 'say again' feature - all the other features are described below.

STEP 1: CHECK YOUR EQUIPMENT AND GIVE US SOME INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
As a first step, you have to check your computer equipment. To enable us to rate your performance, your language test will be recorded on audio and video. Therefore, your computer needs to be equipped with a camera and a microphone. Also, the screen size has to be at least 1280px wide - this is to make sure that you can read the test instructions and multiple choice questions properly.

Give us some information about you
ELPT3 online is language test tailored to the needs of the test taker. Test tasks will be selected automatically and randomly by the test system, but always based on your needs. Therefore, we need some information about you, your flight experience and your pilot license. If for example, you are a helicopter pilot, you will receive different questions than somebody who flies jets. If you are a student pilots, you will typically face different situations than an experienced airline pilot.

Checking your equipment
ELPT3 online helps you to check your computer hardware automatically. This means, that if you don't have the required screen size or browser, the software will tell you that. In no case, you will be able to start and pay for a language test that your equipment can't handle.
On the ELPT3 online start page, you have the opportunity to check your browser audio and video functions. Please click on the start audio / video test button. You will then hear the voice of the ELPT3 speaker, you will see yourself (the picture taken by your camera) and you will have the chance to make a 10 seconds recording. You can say, do whatever you want in whatever languge. This video sequence will not be transmitted or processed by our servers.
Please make sure that you are visible on the picture and that your voice is recorded well and loud enough. We need to be able to see you and hear you.
STEP 2: PAY FOR THE TEST
We currently offer two methods of payment: PayPal (for any customer) or the login with a pre-paid access code. These access codes are typically available for organiations such as airlines, flying schools, clubs or associations. Feel free to contact us, in case you wish to acquire login codes for groups of 10+ test takers.

Option 1: Pay, using PayPal
After you have agreed to our terms and conditions, you will continue to the payment page. On this page, you will find the PayPal symbol which initiates the online payment process (using your PayPal account / Credit Card) or alternatively, you have the option to login using an access code.
Option 2: Login using an access code
This is an alternative to the payment via PayPal. Any organisation with larger number of test takers can acquire pre-paid login codes and deliver them to their employees, members or students.
STEP 3: TAKE THE TEST
After the identification process is finished, your test will start automatically. The test system will guide you through all phases of the langauge test, presenting you all instructions written on the screen and via audio. The test consists of 15 tasks.

Verify your identity
The first question of the test is really easy: Who are you?
As a first step, you need to upload an ID. We accept passports (worldwide), driver's licenses (EU format only) or any other government-issued ID (European customers only). Please make sure that you have a copy of your ID (PDF or image) ready. Then you will be required to identfy yourself, using your camera and microphone. This way, you can already get familiar with the ELPT3 online speaker.

Please make sure that your face is well visible on the video and that we can hear your voice well enough. Then you're good to go!

Take the test
Now your test starts. The test software guides you through all tasks of the test. During the first tasks of the language test, you need to answer a few multiple-choice questions (listening comprehension). Thereafter, you will be asked to answer general questions, describe pictures, make radio calls, explain things, summarize things, ask questions, read back,... which are all things that you usually do when you fly.
