Download chapter

Last revised: 20 Mar 2024

Enrolling in the CAAKT

If you’re eligible for the AGPT program, you’ll receive an email from the RACGP prompting you to enrol in the CAAKT.

You must first pay the enrolment fee by credit card. A link to the payment system will be available in the email you receive from the RACGP.

After you’ve made the payment, you’ll receive an email from Pearson VUE with a link to their enrolment platform. Once you’ve successfully enrolled, you’ll receive a confirmation email from Pearson VUE.

If your credit card isn’t charged and/or you don’t receive a confirmation email, do not assume you are enrolled in the CAAKT. Contact the RACGP immediately via email to selection@racgp.org.au to confirm the status of your enrolment.

Only candidates with a valid enrolment will be permitted to sit the test.

Personal Information

The RACGP will collect your personal information and may need to share it with other agencies as deemed necessary. These agencies include, but are not limited to:

  • Australian Department of Health and Aged Care
  • Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA)
  • Australian Medical Council (AMC)
  • Medicare.

Your personal information will be handled as per the RACGP’s Privacy Policy.

Late enrolment

The RACGP understands that circumstances may cause you to miss the enrolment deadline for the CAAKT. In this case, we’ll accept a late enrolment if it’s received within 7 business days of the closure of enrolments. You don’t need to demonstrate extenuating and unforeseen circumstances to be eligible for a late enrolment within this period.

Late enrolments incur a non-refundable fee of AU$100 and will be added to your enrolment invoice. You will not be able to sit the test if the late enrolment fee is not paid.

No late enrolments will be accepted more than 10 business days after the closure of enrolments. To request a late enrolment, please email selection@racgp.org.au.

Financial hardship

If you’re experiencing financial hardship, you may request an alternative payment arrangement by submitting an Application for special consideration for financial hardship form via email to selection@racgp.org.au.

Venue allocation

When you complete your enrolment, you’ll be asked to select your preferred test date, time and location from the available options. We encourage you to complete your enrolment as soon as possible after receiving your CAAKT invitation as venue capacity is strictly limited.

Once your enrolment is complete, you’ll receive a confirmation email from Pearson VUE with details of the test date, time and location.

If your address changes after enrolling, please notify the RACGP via email to selection@racgp.org.au as soon as possible so we can update your details.

Make sure you carefully plan your travel to and from the test venue and consider the impact of fatigue and stress on safe travel. Where appropriate, you may want to consider overnight accommodation close to your allocated test venue after your enrolment has been confirmed.
