PLIDA exams are necessary to obtain an internationally recognised certificate of your level of knowledge of Italian.

Dante Alighieri in Cape Town is authorised to administer PLIDA exams.

We generally offer up to two exam sessions a year, mainly for B1 level.
Please contact us if you wish to register for the next session.
You need to have a knowledge of Italian at a B1 level to pass this exam.
If you are a beginner you can take classes to cover the levels up to and including B1 (A1, A2 and B1).
