To whom it may concern.

I am pilot and i hold a pilot licence which is based on ICAO rules.

As per March 1st, 2008, all ICAO pilot licence need to have passed an english test.

Up to this date i have not received any information about how or where to do such a test.

Do you have any directions for me towards where i can do such a test online which is internationally accepted.

Looking forward to hear from you soon,

Welcome to the forums.

Looking at the ICAO website, it is clear that they do not recognize TEFOL or similar tests. They say this:

Efforts to develop appropriate and commercially available aviation-specific testing instruments are underway and aviation-specific test options are already available and more will become available in the near future.

All I can suggest is that you contact them and ask for direction to these test options.

These sites may also be of help:
Proficiency Tests - RMIT English Language Test for Aviation (RELTA) - Melbourne, Australia
EUROCONTROL - PELA (Proficiency Test in English Language For Air Traffic Controllers)
ICAO's New Aviation English Proficiency Standard
aerospaceenglish.com | Aviation English | English, Icao, Test, Candidates, Remedial

I hope this is of help and wish you all the best in finding a test centre.
