Test sessions

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 2, Rule 204).

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

ISV Rules and Regulations regarding Testing and Test Sessions can be found in the ISV Testing Protocol for ISA Tests (2019).

All ISA test sessions conducted in Victoria are run by ISV Inc. ISV manages all aspects of the test process, with assistance from club volunteers on the day of the test, filling roles including announcing, playing music and marshalling the gate.

Before booking online

  • All skaters undertaking tests must be a member of ISV, and are required to provide their ISV number at the time of booking. Membership numbers are listed on the Membership page.
  • Couples completing pairs or dance tests need to submit individual test applications online.
  • Interstate skaters need to provide details on their State Membership status on Register Now. Additional fees apply for ice time used.
