Depending on what payment options PayPal offers in your country, you may be able to pay by regional payment methods when paying via PayPal. Regional payment methods may not be available in all countries. The PayPal website will list the payment methods available in your country on the payment page.

Maestro and Switch 

Maestro is a debit card issued in various countries around the world. Because different banks have implemented Maestro differently, not all Maestro cards will work for internet transactions.

PayPal will allow you to use Maestro as a payment method in many countries, but not all countries.  We have confirmed that Maestro cards issued in the UK work via PayPal, but are not sure about Maestro cards issued elsewhere.


We accept personal cheques. We will apply this payment to the account indicated as soon as we receive it, but not earlier.

Please make the cheque payable to "The Official Test Centre Ltd" and send via postal mail with a note enclosed providing your primary email address, name (or client ID) and order to:

The Official Test Centre Ltd, Puma P1 Building, Navigator Park, Mereside, Portland, Dorset, DT5 1FU, UK

Cheques must be in GBP and drawn from a U.K. Bank.

Bank Transfer

We accept payments via bank transfer. Please get in touch with us for more information.
