NAATI

The Credentialed Community Language (CCL) test is an assessment of your language abilities at a community level.



The CCL test is generally taken by the applicants who are looking to lodge a point-based visa application. On successfully passing the test, applicants are awarded five points towards the Skilled Independent visa (subclass 189), Skilled Nominated visa (subclass 190), or Skilled Regional (Provisional) visa (subclass 489).

Test Format
NAATI CCL tests are delivered online, Monday to Friday.

The test consists of two dialogue recordings. Each dialogue represents a conversation between a native English Speaker and a native Language Other Than English (LOTE) speaker. Each dialogue is approximately 300 words, with about half in English and half in the LOTE. The dialogues are divided into segments of 35 words or less.
As CCL tests are online, candidates overseas can sit the test. All tests are run on Canberra time.
