A new service with the English language at the centre of its operations now has a base in Torquay. 

Mobile Testing Solutions has successfully bid for the rights to deliver IELTS1 language tests and pre-Lockdown opened a new test venue at the Riviera English School on The Terrace. 

The International English Language Testing System is the world's most popular English language proficiency. 

MTS says the centre will be welcome news for anyone living in Devon and Cornwall who needs to get their English language ability tested and certified. Test-takers could either be British people seeking to emigrate outside of the UK, or people from abroad wishing to access higher education or work placements in the UK if English is not their first language. 

CEO Michal Mazanek said: “I am really happy to be offering English language testing in Torquay. The IELTS test is a widely-trusted English language test providing scores that are a reliable indicator of a person’s ability to communicate in English.”
