In accordance with Ice Skating Australia Rules and Regulations, ISV conducts ISA Tests throughout the year.

All tests undertaken in Victoria must have the appropriate paperwork and payment submitted 14 days prior to the test session. If a skater fails a test, they may not repeat the same test for a minimum of 28 days (as per ISA Rulebook Section 4, Rule 404).

To view all rules relating to ISA Tests, and their eligibility, please refer to the ISA Rule Book.
