Well, the cost depends on where you’re taking the exam- remember there are several TOEFL test centers in Kenya.

When to register for TOEFL exams in Kenya (TOEFL exam dates in Kenya)

The best way is to register about 3 – 4 months before the date you are planning to take the exams to be sure of a seat.

In other words, your test date needs to be 2-3 months before so pay before the earliest application(for admissions) deadline (check with the center you want to take exams in).

But in the event you’re not able to do that – and you want to take the test urgently- just keep in mind that registration for TOEFL exams closes 7 days (exactly) before your targeted test date.

But also understand that there’s a Late registration window- and this typically shuts 4 days before the test date- but at an extra US Dollars 40.00 (late registration fee).

That is why I said it is always nice to register for your TOEFL tests early enough.
