Quick Update – Guide to Registering for the JLPT – Japanese Language Proficiency Test – 2015

If there’s one thing we’ve learned so far by living in Japan, it’s that Japanese websites love text and html… lots of html.

The JLPT registration process is no exception to this rule. The registration deadline for the second test in 2015 is 9/30/2015!!! So do your best to register quickly. The next JLPT test date is 12/06/2015

Step 1) Visit https://my.jees-jlpt.jp/user/VPPSLRMP010.php and register for your MyJLPT ID

Step 2) After you have been given your ID, login here: https://my.jees-jlpt.jp/user/VCPGCLGN010.php Once you login with your MyJLPT ID, fill out the application form and pay 5,500 Yen by credit card.  If you are in Japan, you can also pay via combini.  The confirmation of application acceptance won’t happen until the close of the registration deadline, but they will confirm on your application that you are all paid up.

You will receive the test voucher in the mail, and if you’re lucky you may be selected for the practice test which will allow you to take a practice test one month early and get paid 2,000 yen for your troubles.  This is done by a lottery and I have no information on how applicants are selected, so don’t ask!

It’s as easy as that.  Are you taking the JLPT?  Leave a comment
