Please note: If you have not run your own exams in the past then you will need to register as a centre before booking a date. Please click here for further information.
If you have a registered centre number and have a minimum spend of £826/€1500 in practical exam fees, then Trinity can send an examiner to you on the date of your choosing. To calculate whether you will meet our minimum fee please take a look at our current fee lists. If you do not meet the minimum fee but would still like to host exams at your own location you are permitted to pay the difference.
To request an exam session please complete our short drama exam booking form at least 8 weeks prior to your desired exam date. Before requesting a date please read the Private Visit Guidelines and check our additional Private Centre guidance on health considerations.

Private drama centres in the UK & Ireland who would like to enter candidates for online Communication Skills examinations should be aware of the following arrangements.
Bookings for online Communication Skills examinations can be made for a 3.5-hour period only. This equates to three hours of examining time (incorporating breaks). Timetabling is automatic and breaks will be built in; a 10-minute break will be timetabled every 50 minutes. If a subsequent examination session is booked on the same day, a second examiner will be provided for the later session.
The online Communications Skills assessment must be completed via Zoom. Centres should make sure they are proficient in the use of Zoom.
Examination bookings can be made in the usual way. There is a minimum fee of £300/€350 for Communication Skills by online delivery bookings. For assistance with enrolling candidates, please use the help guides found at the top right of the screen once logged into the portal.
