What is IELTS TRF (Test Report Form)?

The IELTS TRF full form is the Test Report Form, which is a copy of an applicant's IELTS exam result. Every applicant is issued only one IELTS TRF, which is valid for two years. If students are applying to CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) or UKBA (United Kingdom Border Agency), then they are given two copies of TRF.

The TRF IELTS will be available 13 days after taking the paper-based test and 3 to 5 days after taking the computer-delivered test. If you take the Life Skills A1 or B1 test, then you can get the TRF 7 days after the test. You can collect your TRF from the IDP test centre by providing proof of identity that you used while registering or by downloading the IELTS TRF from the official website.


The IELTS Test Report Form (TRF) is now an eTRF and can be downloaded online. The following steps will help you understand how to download your eTRF:

Universities, colleges, immigration authorities, and other institutions verify the validity of test results through the IELTS Test Report Form verification process. The online IELTS Test Report Form verification site will be used to evaluate the candidates' IELTS results. 


Organisations can use this free service to confirm whether or not the applicant is submitting an authentic TRF. Enrolling the organisation in the IELTS results verification service is the first step in the IELTS TRF verification procedure. Organisations can then download the candidates' IELTS results online using their TRF number.


Following are the steps that organisations need to perform to verify the TRF:

What is an Additional Test Report Form (ATRF)?

No extra fees are needed to process the first five Test Report Forms (TRF). However, the candidate must choose Additional Test Report Forms (ATRF), available for a fee if they wish to submit their results to additional colleges and universities. Please note that applications submitted offline, in person, for the ATRF are no longer accepted as of February 1, 2020. For the following reasons, only applications submitted online are accepted:

  • Doing away with the requirement of visiting any IDP branch

  • No delay in courier time

  • ATRFs are acknowledged instantaneously via email

  • The processing time of applications gets reduced


The institution will receive the first five electronic extra TRFs at no cost, but there will be additional costs for courier and international postage services. If you require more than five copies of the ATRF, an administration fee of INR 250 may be imposed. The additional TRF request will be processed in five to ten business days.

A candidate must submit an online request through the IELTS IDP website if they would like to apply for more than five TRFs. There is an INR 250 fee for each institution. Depending on the option selected by the candidate, the scores are either physically or electronically transmitted to the institutions. The candidates must pay an additional courier fee of INR 1500 for the physical option.
