Hi, my family is looking to move to NZ and just wondered if we would have to take the IELTS test? We were all born in the uk, so speaking english isnt a problem.

Thanks Lou

If you are UK born and English is your primary language (you were schooled in English etc), then, no, you don't need to take the test. :D You just put that down as your explanation (we put: "I am English, born, educated and work in England") and they didn't want any further info.
