Private music exam visits in England, Scotland and Wales

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.

Each region of the UK has a coordinator whom you can contact for support or to make a booking. You can find your coordinator from our regional map (pdf).

If you have a registered centre number and have a minimum spend of £600 in practical exam fees, then Trinity can send an examiner to you. You can request a date by contacting your regional coordinator at Trinity at least 8 weeks prior to your desired exam date. You can request a specialist examiner by contacting your regional coordinator at Trinity at least 12 weeks prior to your desired exam date.

There are peak weeks during each exam session when it may not be possible to give examiner visit requests their first choice of date. Trinity advises centres to avoid these peak periods when booking an exam date. For more information please read the Private Visit Guidelines.

This year, the peak periods are:

  • Spring 2020: 16 March to 3 April
  • Summer 2020: 22 June to 17 July
  • Autumn 2020: 23 November to 11 December

Before requesting a date please read the Private Visit Guidelines.

Theory exams

Theory exams take place on set dates throughout the year. For more information please visit our theory pages.

You can hold theory exams at your own organisation with a minimum fee of £75. There is no need to pre-book this, please enter your candidates via Trinity Online by the closing date listed on the theory pages.

If you have any further questions please contact the regional coordinator.

Trinity Online

Exam centres have access to Trinity Online, which supports exam administration and gives you access to exam paperwork and candidate records.

You will be issued with a username and password to access Trinity Online when you register your centre. Once registered please see the user guides.

Not enough candidates to meet the minimum spend required?

No problem - both practical and theory exams are organised at public exam centres across the UK and Ireland which are open to all. For more information see Book Classical, Jazz and Percussion.
