Applying for a practical examination

  1.  Log into your ADC Connect portal via connect.adc.org.au

  3.  Confirm that this is the examination you are applying for and select ‘Apply’.
  4.  Agree to the declaration and select ‘Next’.
  5.  Complete the payment form and select ‘Pay Now’. We accept payments via Mastercard or Visa debit and credit cards.
  6.  Once payment is made a confirmation screen will appear. You have completed the application process for the practical examination.

Paying for your practical examination

To complete your application for the practical examination, payment must be received by the ADC during the application period. We now accept debit and credit card payments via Visa and Mastercard.

If you are wanting to make payment via a third party, simply copy the URL at the Payment screen and email it to the party making payment on your behalf. Please do not share your ADC Connect credentials when arranging payment. These are not required to access this payment screen, you only need to provide the URL.

How do I know if my application is submitted successfully?

Once you submit payment and return to the dashboard, you will see a message under the practical examination section stating ‘You have applied for a practical examination place between March and May 2022. We will send you an invitation to book your preferred examination dates when bookings open.

A copy of your invoice will also be available in the document manager section of the portal.

You will receive an email from the ADC when the practical examination booking period opens. We expect this will be on Wednesday 19 January and you will have a few days to select your preferred practical examination date. Please note that the ADC will try to accommodate your preferred choice, but this may not be possible, and you may be allocated to a different session. Confirmation will be sent to candidates by the end of January.
