If your level of German is low, you should take Test 1 ("German for Beginners"). Depending on your test result, it allows you to register for German courses up to B.1.1.

If your level of German is higher and you want to register for a course higher than B1.1 you must take Test 2 ("Deutsch als Fremdsprache").

It is possible to take both tests. The time limit is 60 minutes for Test 1 and 25 minutes for Test 2.
