What is a pre-screening?
A pre-screening is a test to know if your level of Dutch is good enough to pass an official test by appointment.
The pre-screening is only oral, the official test by appointment is oral and written.
The pre-screening is shorter than a test. It lasts about 5 minutes and is about general topics. After the test we give you an advice:
- If your Dutch is good enough, you can make an appointment for an official test.
- Is your Dutch not good enough? Then we give you alternatives to achieve your level.
You choose whether you follow our advice.
Why a pre-screening?
An official test by appointment takes a long time. You must reserve two half days.
Are you not sure whether your Dutch is good enough? Then you can do the short pre-screening and only then decide whether to do the long official test.
How do you make an appointment for a test?
This test is currently carried out during a video call. The test will only take place in the Dutch Language House when it is technically impossible to do otherwise.
You can’t do a pre-screening for the Dutch language test for the priority regulation for day nurseries or for secondary, primary and pre-primary education and for the Proof of Dutch knowledge for training as a social interpreter.
