Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test
Last updated 6 March 2013
Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test replaced by Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme
The Qualified Lawyers Transfer Regulations (QLTR) and Qualified Lawyers Transfer Test (QLTT) were replaced by the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS) on 1 September 2010.
If you applied before the QLTT scheme closed on 31 August 2010 you will have been issued with a certificate of eligibility that will require you to pass certain heads of the QLTT and/or complete a period of work experience before you can apply for admission as a solicitor of England and Wales. This certificate will expire on or before 31 August 2013.
You can sit the QLTT and/or meet the work experience requirements up to the expiry date of your QLTT certificate of eligibility.
You should contact a test provider as soon as you can to arrange to sit the tests.
If you are unable to fulfil your work experience requirement by the expiry date of your certificate of eligibility, you may instead be able to sit the Objective Structure Clinical Examination (OSCE) and Technical Legal Skills Test (TLST) assessments of the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme (QLTS).
Please see the news release issued by the SRA on 23 April 2012.
