In this tutorial we will show you how to register TOEFL in Nigeria. Several people, maybe because of lack of appropriate information pay lump sum of money to so-called TOEFL agents and registrars for the purpose of TOEFL registration. If you compare the fees people pay to agents, it’s too exorbitant; the highest TOEFL registration fee for Nigeria is $160-$175 depending on location which falls below 30,000 NGN for the registration. What about preparatory books? These are by far inexpensive compare to how vendors hyperbolize it. TOEFL registration is entirely what you can do on your own. In fact for you to be able to pass the TOEFLE test with good grades, you have to know how to register for the test on your own because the exam itself is computer based. You have to know how to navigate around the computer window to be able to register and even write and pass TOEFL test. So why pay people to do it for you? The TOEFL test registration navigation window is self explanatory and you just need to follow the instructions given in this tutorial.
General TOEFL Website Navigation tips
Do not use your browser’s BACK button during registration
TOEFL has multiple security measures to ensure the safety of your
information, including a time limit. To expedite the registration
process, you are advised to keep the required information in place before starting the application; such as up to four recipients (institutions) you want to receive your scores, how YOU want to receive your scores (web only or web plus a paper copy sent by mail) and complete payment information (credit card, voucher number)
During registration, do not browse any pages outside of the test registration system
Do not enter characters that contain accent marks (i.e., ă ç ñ ó ü). This is because these are not supported by the registration system. The last but not the least, do not DOUBLE-CLICK any of the buttons, especially when submitting payment to avoid being charged twice.

See Fig2
The challenge questions are used for security reasons, select three challenge questions that are easy to remember but that others do not know. If you forget your user name or password, you must answer one of these challenge questions to verify your identity.
Confirm your Profile
A confirmation page will appear displaying all of the information you submitted. Be sure that the
spelling of your name exactly matches the name printed on the identification document(s) you will present at the test center. If this information does not match, you will not be permitted to test and your test fee will be forfeited. After you create your profile, you will reach “My Home Page”.

Select a Test Center Location
Each test location represents a general area, not necessarily a specific city. For example, Berlin can mean Berlin itself, or within approximately a 50-mile radius.

For example, if you are searching for a city in the New York City area, search in the Northern New Jersey area as well.
